PLEA

Gen-Out

Gen-Out is a free, confidential and voluntary support group for youth aged 13-18 who are exploring gender and sexuality. Their allies are also welcome to attend.

Why we do it...

Our aim is to provide youth with a safe, supportive, fun space where they can be themselves and explore their own gender, sexuality, identity and self-expression.

How we work...

The Gen-Out facilitators strive to tailor sessions to the strengths, needs and circumstances of those in attendance.

Where we do it...

The Gen-Out participants meet every Monday from 6pm – 8pm. Sessions take place in Maple / Pitt Meadows and in the Tri-Cities.

What we do…

We provide a safe space to hang out and a group facilitator. Participants share their interests and work together to come up with weekly activities. Typical activities include bowling, crafts,pizza parties, board games, movies, guest speakers and peer support.The evenings often include a discussion on current events regarding or affecting the LGBT2Q+community. There are also opportunities for youth to discuss what may be going on for them.
