Youth Support & Resources

The youth of our community represents the future of the LGBTQ2+ movement and the legacy to maintain a safe and responsible communal group that will support the South Okanagan and Similkameen region for generations to come. Below you can find vital support resources and information about youth support.

Access Centre

The Access Centre changes lives through poverty advocacy, awareness, and action. The barriers that Access Centre clients face often feel insurmountable to them. We work with them to break down those barriers step by step so that they can move forward in their lives.

QMUNITY

QMUNITY is what happens when queer, trans, and Two-Spirit folks looking for a sense of community come together to meet, guide, and support each other.

Find. Forge. Found.

Foundry offers young people ages 12-24 health and wellness resources, services and supports – online and through integrated service centres in eight communities across BC.

SOGI 123

Everyone has a sexual orientation and gender identity.

 

SOGI 1 2 3 helps educators make schools inclusive and safe for students of all sexual orientations and gender identities (SOGI). At a SOGI-inclusive school, students' biological sex does not limit their interests and opportunities, and their sexual orientation and how they understand and express their gender are welcomed without discrimination.
