Central and Western Newfoundland GSA Forum!

The Canadian Centre for Gender & Sexual Diversity, in partnership with the Newfoundland & Labrador English School District, will provide two GSA Forums for local high school students in the Spring of 2019 in the Central and Western Regions.

We understand the importance of providing knowledge, tools and skills for youth to navigate through their secondary 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 2SLGBTQ+ Terminology, Transgender Inclusivity,  Healthy Relationships and Consent, GSA Leadership, and other various topics that cover the intersection of identities in the 2SLGBTQ+ community.

These events will also include workshops specifically for educators, helping them to continue providing an inclusive learning environment for all students.

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