The Youth Project has a monthly schedule of regular programs. These programs happen once each month on a specific night. Check the calendar to find out when they are happening.
Come and get artsy! Every other month join us at the Youth Project and create some crafty things with other crafty people. Occasionally we will have local guest artists teach you the tricks of their trade so stay tuned! All the supplies will be provided!
Talk it OUT!!
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 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.
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.
Come on out and see a movie with a LGBT theme or character. Fresh popcorn and snacks are available. Movies are viewed by LCD projector on a big screen with surround sound. Movie suggestions are always welcome.
