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.

Game Night (1st Thursday of the month 6-8pm)

A social space for youth to hangout and play board games. Registration is required as seats are limited. This space takes place at Game Knight store in Dartmouth and as it is a storefront with customers coming and going, confidentiality is not assured.

Transformers (3rd Wednesday of the month 6-8pm)

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 6-8pm)

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 protected] or 902-429-5429. This group is open to adults only.

 

The Valley Youth Project

The Valley Youth Project (VYP) is an Annapolis Valley-based non-profit organization run by three volunteers and residents of the Annapolis Valley: Mylène DiPenta, Tim Hughes, and Krista MacDonald.  We facilitate twice-monthly drop-ins, with time for discussion and activities.  We also provide workshops for youth and adults.
