Long Island Gay and Lesbian Youth (LIGALY) received a $10,000 grant from the Best Buy Children’s Foundation in support of LIGALY’s CyberCenter. This marks the second year-in-a-row that the Best Buy Children's Foundation has provided support to LIGALY to ensure GLBT youth have access to technology.

LIGALY's CyberCenter is a 12-station computer center located within The Center at Bay Shore that provides a safe space for GLBT youth to access computers and the Internet, and help youth build life skills around technology. With these skills, youth will be better prepared for college and/or employment, and subsequently have a greater likelihood of overall success in life. This includes a higher likelihood of a attaining a college degree and obtaining higher earnings. The CyberCenter also encourages youth by lending a safe location for study, homework, and healthy socialization.
