Being a teenager can be tough.
But we've got supports to get you through those tough times.
Safe space. Good times. Both of those are big aspects of our queer youth group that runs every Wednesday from 4:30pm until 9:00pm, and features a free supper. Rainbow Coffee is a city-wide network of queer youth who are looking for community, friendship, and solidarity. The group first started in 2012 with a small group of regulars and has since grown to have a weekly turn out of around 30 youth! Made up of students from almost every high school in Saskatoon as well as students from surrounding towns, Rainbow Coffee is a great place to meet people who are just like you. For more info on Rainbow Coffee you can contact OUTSaskatoon's Youth Coordinator: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Queer Youth Committee is an initiative spearheaded by youth for youth as a way to have their voices heard and to make programming at OUTSaskatoon more meaningful for youth. The QYC is made up of you who attend Rainbow Coffee, some of which come from different elementary and secondary schools across the city, and some of which don't go to school. The QYC is a place to build leadership skills, learn how to plan events, learn how to facilitate meetings, and ultimately how to use your voice to make a big impact. If you'd like to join the QYC email our Youth Coordinator (email@example.com) to find out when the next group meeting takes place!
Gender Revolution is a group for anyone who identifies along the trans spectrum. The group meets every Tuesday at 7:00pm at OUTSaskatoon. For more info on Gender Revolution you can contact: Maaya at firstname.lastname@example.org or Rachel at RachelNLHitomi@gmail.com.
