Event description

Description

The Canadian Centre for Gender & Sexual Diversity, in partnership with Burnaby School District 41, will provide an LGBTQ+ Youth Forum to local high school students from around British Columbia on Friday, October 19th, 2018 at Moscrop Secondary School (4433 Moscrop St, Burnaby BS V5G 2G3). Participation and lunch are FREE!

We understand the importance of providing knowledge, tools and skills for youth to navigate through their school experiences. Having access to workshops that provide education on inclusivity can help students normalize their feelings, identities and relationships. We will cover topics such as LGBTQ+ Terminology, Transgender Inclusivity, Intersectionality, Healthy Relationships, LGBTQ2+ History and other various topics that cover the intersection of identities in the LGBTQ+ community.

There will be professional development workshops for educators and students during breakout workshop sessions.

Registration for workshops will be sent out to all confirmed participants in October. Please watch for our email or watch our website for this link.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact Amanda Myerson, National Conferences Coordinator, by email at leadership@ccgsd-ccdgs.org or by phone at (613) 400-1875.

There will be icebreaker style activities and games to take part in. We understand that some groups may need to leave early due to transportation and travel. We are hoping to build community and help youth build connections with students from other schools should they be able to stay for the session.
