Supporting Our Youth (SOY), a program of Sherbourne Health, is a set of health promotion services and programming centered on supporting the health and wellbeing goals established by LGBT2SQ youth and young adults, many of whom are homeless, racialized and newcomers to Canada.

We support your goals, strengths, resourcefulness and success through a range of programs. We have a range of drop-in and community groups and events, including Black Queer Youth, Trans Fusion Crew, Express for Newcomers, and Intersections, which includes programming focused around art and health. We occasionally also have openings in our Internal Housing program, if you are in need of housing.

As part of our Goal Planning Service, we provide one-on-one support. Guided by your goals, we work with you to restore, maintain and improve your overall health and wellbeing.

We have five Youth Resource Workers/YRWs in our Goal Planning Service/GPS, each with a different focus:

YRW - Black Queer Youth
YRW - Newcomer & Refugee Youth
YRW - Trans & Non-Binary Youth
YRW - Internal Housing Program
YRW - Youth In Transition (youth who are or were involved in the Child Welfare System)

We also have Mentorship programming. SOY Connect matches a LGBTQ+ mentee with an adult mentor in the community. For more info you can contact Courtney Niven cniven@sherbourne.on.ca
