The Youth Project, in partnership with Halifax Libraries is pleased to present Connect the Dots, a social support group for youth 18 and under, around sexual orientation and gender identity.
Currently, Connect the Dots meets in four library locations in HRM:
Sackville Public Library
1st Tuesday of the month
Musquodoboit Harbour Public Library
1st Wednesday of the month
Elmsdale Public Library
1st Thursday of the month
Woodlawn Public Library
3rd Tuesday of the month
Captain William Spry Library
Last Tuesday of every month
Just show up and come on in! There’s no formal sign-up process to take part in a Connect the Dots meeting.
Meetings are open to ALL youth ages 18 and under, no matter your sexual orientation or gender identity. You will never be asked to identify yourself in these ways.
Meetings will be split into half discussion (maybe you want to talk about coming out, or labels, homophobia in your school, or what’s happening lately in your life) and half activity (we have a button-maker and tons of fun stuff!) if those attending want to stop discussion to do something fun. What we talk about or do is up to the people there. Connect the Dots is also a confidential space.
Each meeting is facilitated by trained staff and volunteers from The Youth Project.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with Bria MacKinnon, the Youth Project’s Community Engagement Coordinator & coordinator of Connect the Dots!
