Youth Sexual Health Action Group (YSHAG)

THIS SERVICE IS NON-QUEER, TRANS & LGBTQ SPECIFIC. Call the line for more info on 2SLGBTQ+ inclusivity.

The Youth Sexual Health Action Group (YSHAG) is a group of youth who strive to create safer spaces that foster an open dialogue about relationships and sexual health for diverse youth in Waterloo Region. We meet weekly to discuss how to improve youth specific resources, to work on closing the gap between the school board equity and inclusion policy and student experiences of inclusion, or lack thereof, in their education and to work on their own self-led projects.
