The Youth Project provides supportive counselling for youth who want to talk to someone about sexual orientation or gender identity. Our support coordinator is available to listen, provide information and help youth get more support. We can provide support to families as well. If you want to get some questions answered, are experiencing harassment, are confused about who you are, are coming out, need help, or just want to talk, we are here.
Call and make an appointment to talk to someone. We can come to your school or community and meet with you there if you can’t make it to us. We can also use Skype to chat for those of you who are far away. All you need to do is contact us by phone or e-mail.
Our support worker can also help you get connected to other safe and supportive resources in your community.
The Youth Project runs many programs and services but you may need something the Youth Project doesn’t provide. We can help you get connected to the right resources, the right people, and the right programs for you. If you are looking for a professional, a program or an organization that is LGBT positive, we can provide you with that information.
We can provide referrals to:
- Mental health programs
- Programs for health issues such as eating disorders, addictions or anger management
- Employment Programs
- Education Programs
- Many other people and services
Past AGM reports: 2010-2011
