Posted on November 3, 2021

The Provincial Youth Ambassador Program is now offering dedicated Healing Spaces exclusive to 2SLGBTQ+ Black and Indigenous youth (ages 16-29) in Ontario!

 

Running from late December 2021 to March 2022, this initiative offers Youth Ambassadors in these pods the opportunity to engage each other in holistic conversations and activities centered on healing and the intersections of race, indigeneity, sexuality and gender. 

 

Example workshops include:

  • somatic healing/meditation
  • arts-based activities
  • conversations on decolonization
  • preparing bundle items (for the Indigenous group*)

These weekly sessions are facilitated by Black and/or Indigenous community organizers and leaders, and will culminate in the creation of collaborative art zines to commemorate youths’ time spent together and the learnings they will take away!

DEADLINE: Tuesday, November 30 @ 11:59PM EST
