What is Queer Youth?

The Queer Youth Kawartha Lakes program is made up of a group of youth grades 7-12 who identify with the 2SLGBTQ+ community and their allies. The group is governed by four pillars:

Safety

Youth have a safe space to meet, where they can openly share their thoughts, opinions, fears and struggles. Youth do not feel forced to identify themselves as 2SLGBTQ+ if they don’t feel ready or comfortable.

Belonging & Acceptance

Youth have a place where they fit in and feel accepted for exactly who they are and how they identify.

Leadership

2SLGBTQ+ volunteers and allies lead the group. The youth participants share leadership responsibilities and collaborate with their leaders to plan and facilitate each group session. Participants are provided with opportunities to grow as leaders within the group through facilitation, workshops, and guest speakers.

Advocacy & Awareness

Participants work together to plan and implement strategies of advocacy and awareness within the City of Kawartha Lakes. Youth facilitate activities, events and develop projects to inform their schools and local community about the 2SLGBTQ+ community and the marginalization they face daily.
