Operating from a queer, feminist lens the program incorporates youth driven community action initiatives and fosters strong community partnerships to:

  • Provide knowledge and empowerment opportunities for young people to make informed choices;
  • Support the next generation of the sexual reproductive justice movement by fostering awareness and activism.
  • Offer accessible comprehensive sexuality education that is medically accurate and inclusive of various identities and experiences.
