Connect The Dots

Connect the Dots!

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 three library locations:

Sackville Public Library
1st Tuesday of the month

Woodlawn Public Library
3rd Tuesday of the month

Keshen Goodman Public Library
3rd Tuesday of the month

Musquodoboit Harbour Library
2nd Thursday of the month

We have four Connect the Dots programs running currently, however we would like to expand! Are you interested in helping/volunteering to start up a Connect the Dots in your local library? Please contact us at

How can I take part?

Just show up and come on in! There’s no formal sign-up process to take part in a Connect the Dots meeting.

Can anyone go?

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.

What happens there?

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.

Who facilitates?

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 us!
