The Youth Project has a monthly schedule of regular programs. These programs happen once each month on a specific night.
Once a month we gather to watch a LGBT themed movie! We will post which movie we’re watching in advance, but if you have any suggestions please send them our way! If the weather is nice enough, this event is sometimes held outside in our backyard. Movie snacks provided!
Drop-In night is a chance to come down to the Youth Project and get support, hang out with friends, meet new people, join in an activity, check out the library, or get some information. This event is open to all youth 25 and under. There are volunteers and staff present including our support worker.
This group is a support and discussion group for transgender and gender queer youth, 25 and under. The purpose of this group is to bring together transgender and gender queer youth to share experiences, talk about the issues around gender identity, and learn more about support options. The group decides on what topics and activities they would like to discuss or do. The group is facilitated by two knowledgeable volunteers from the community.
Meeting monthly, this group is for parents and adult family members of transgender youth. Parents night is a chance for parents & family to get together, meet one another and get support. It’s a confidential and judgement-free space to ask questions, explore issues, and chat with other parents. If you’re feeling alone, looking for information, want to ask questions or want to support other parents, please check out this group! If your parents or family could benefit from this group, let them know!
If you’re curious but need more information, please connect with our staff: email@example.com or 902-429-5429. This group is open to adults only.
