An Overview of Our Programs

Our mission, at CCGSD, is guided by the principle of advocacy through education. We believe that one of the strongest ways to incite positive change in our communities is through youth empowerment. To empower queer and trans youth across Canada we create workshops, resources, toolkits, forums, and other accessible and engaging mediums.

At CCGSD we have 3 core education programs: Comprehensive Sexuality Education, Intersectionality & Diversity, and Queer History.

Our core educational programs share knowledge with youth, educators, and youth supporters to address gaps in education around 2SLGBTQIA+ people and their experiences.

Our programs do so through two streams: in-school workshops and grant-funded thematic projects.

CCGSD’s Programs Streams:

1) CCGSD’s Core Programs Work in Classrooms

We create and deliver workshops in schools for youth in Grades 4 to 12 in order to fill the gap in school curriculum on 2SLGBTQIA+ and BIPOC identities and experiences. 

2) Grant-funded Thematic Projects

Each of our 3 core programs also delivers grant-funded thematic projects to take the work we do in schools  and make them more responsive to 2SLGBTQIA+ and BIPOC identities and experiences outside of the classroom. Our projects aim to create spaces for 2SLGBTQIA+ peer-to-peer youth connections. These projects create spaces by and for youth to help inform our creation of resources shared with students  in classrooms.

Our Programs at a Glance

Comprehensive Sexuality Education

Our Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) Program teaches students about their bodies, relationships , and identities. We help youth make informed decisions and advocate for themselves. The program encourages growth, no matter your age, gender, or body type.

Intersectionality and Diversity

Our Intersectionality and Diversity Program presents students with the opportunity to explore the complexities of identities and how they intersect. Adopting an intersectional perspective on oppression and privilege fosters discussions on social movements and activism, promoting respect for differences and a deeper understanding of identity.

Queer History

Our Queer History Program works to educate youth about 2SLGBTQIA+ Canadian history through storytelling, intergenerational connection, and centring diverse voices.
