Monthly Programming

Discover our Programming

The Youth Project has a monthly schedule of regular programs. These programs happen once each month on a specific night.

Talk it OUT! (1st Wednesday of the month)

Talk it OUT is our newest program! Once a month we get together to have a discussion, or learn new skills in a workshop from guest speakers, community members and other organizations. Want to have real, in-depth discussions with other youth, or learn something relevant to LGBTQ issues? Come to Talk it OUT!

Drop-In (2nd Tuesday of the month)

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, check out the food bank, or get some information. This event is open to all youth 25 and under. There are volunteers and staff present including our support worker and a nurse.

 

Transformers (3rd Wednesday of the month)

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.

Parents & Family Group (4th Thursday of the month)

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: youthproject@youthproject.ns.ca or 902-429-5429. This group is open to adults only.
