Community Group, Drop-in/Support Group, Education/Workshops

SAEFTY Ottawa (Support And Education For Trans Youth Ottawa) is an independent organization created and run by and for trans and gender diverse youth. We aim to bridge the gap between trans and gender diverse people of all ages, by giving them the chance to connect in a space that is free from transphobia, homophobia, heterosexism, sexism, racism, ableism, islamophobia, colonialism, and other forms of oppression. Some events may intentionally centre on youth who are younger (eg. elementary school aged) or older (eg. high school aged and beyond), but all events are open to trans people of all ages. As a community organization, SAEFTY is committed to providing a safer space for all trans and gender diverse youth where they can meet and connect with each other in a non-medical environment. We aim to provide positive and relatable role models to trans kids and youth in a supportive space where they can be themselves.

Community Group, Education/Workshops, Sexual Health

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.
