Strong and Resilient (STARS) is a program for Queer, Trans, & Questioning youth and allies ages 13-21.
It's designed for youth by youth through a Youth Advisory Committee (YAC)
Whether you want to talk about sexuality, identity, substance use, coming out, or just chill, STARS provides a safe space.
We offer a range of activities and workshops including expressive arts workshops, field trips, discussion groups and non-judgmental comprehensive drug education. STARS takes place in The Studio where you can do all kinds of performance: acting, drag, drama, dance and theatre to name a few.
Or get involved behind the scenes organizing stuff.
YAC members are involved in everything from hiring staff, designing programs and flyers to evaluating the program. There are opportunities to do outreach and earn an honorarium for your work or get credit towards the 40 hours of community service required for high school graduation.
Swing by and meet some people.
There is usually food and TTC fare is provided for anyone who needs it.
