Youth check in (name, pronouns, highlight/lowlight, answer check in question). Check in questions vary from silly to serious. Youth can participate as much or little as they wish – always ok to ‘pass’ on a question or activity. Following check in, we play a game, complete an activity, provide feedback to Assets Team about activities they are coordinating and help prepare for events (things like making decorations for pink prom).



Pink Prom

In 2004 a group of dedicated adults came together to create a Pink Prom, specific for LGBTQIA+ youth living in Snohomish County.  Youth from the GLOBE youth group, as well as the Assets Team and other community volunteers created the First Annual Pink Prom, with the goal of providing a safe, fun and substance free prom for LGBTQIA+ youth and their friends. 


Many of the youth did not attend their own proms as it was not safe to be out, or they were not allowed to be out as LGBTQIA+ or to invite whoever they wanted to the prom as a queer youth.  Therefore the Pink Prom became an event dedicated to LGBTQIA+ youth ages 14 - 20 and their friends.  The event has continued to grow each year, with the youth taking the leadership to decide on each year's theme and to plan, coordinate and decorate the event, taking pride in this amazing experience that they create together. 


GLOBE, Everett PFLAG and Everett Community College have been the sponsors for this very meaningful dance each year.  The Pink Prom has celebrated 17 years of  being a safe and memorable evening for our youth.  Unfortunately the Pink Prom did not occur in 2020 due to COVID-19.  However we look forward to many more years of hosting Pink Prom in Snohomish County in the future. 

Healthy relationships, coming out, HIV/AIDs & STD education, spirituality, self-esteem, communication skills, PRIDE, substance abuse prevention, community events and much more.

Links & Alliances Conference 

The Links and Alliances Conference was developed in 1997 with the intention of creating an educational conference for LGBTQIA+ youth in Snohomish County.  In 1997 GLOBE was the only resource available in the county for queer youth. The goal was to create an event that began to connect LGBTQIA+ youth with safe and supportive resources in their community, therefore creating Links & Alliances for our youth. The conference was originally sponsored by GLOBE,  Everett Community College, the Snohomish Health District, Snohomish County Human Services, Open Door Ministries and Compass Health.  Across the years the number of organizations sponsoring the event and showing their support for our youth has grown significantly. 


With the exception of 2020 and 2021, when the conference occurred virtually due to COVID-19, the conference has been hosted by Everett Community College.  This day-long event  provides a valuable experience that is fun and educational for youth, parents, educators and community service providers. What originally began as a conference for LGBTQIA+ youth has since grown to become A Conference For and About Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Trans*, Transsexual, Queer, Questioning, Intersex, Ally, Asexual, Pansexual, 2-Spirit+ Youth (LGBT*TQQIAAP2S).  We are committed to continuing to grow as our community and the awareness of our community grows. 


The goals of the conference are to:

Ø  Equip youth with solid facts about healthy behaviors

Ø  Teach and empower youth to make healthy decisions about their lives

Ø  Promote positive role models for youth

Ø  Assist LGBT*TQQIAAP2S+ youth in gaining a positive self-image

Ø  Provide an atmosphere of fun, learning and support for youth

Ø  Building adult support in order to assist in the development of healthier youth

"Spending time at GLOBE gave me the information and the space to figure out my gender identity. I started coming to GLOBE as a young girl, but came to realize that I am transgendered."
