Help us raise 20k by January 1st to support our mission and programming!

LGBTQ+ youth need a space to connect with peers, to talk openly about stigmatized topics, and find out about appropriate health and social services. For over 25 years, Project 10 has  been creating safer spaces where youth can receive support, find one another, and define themselves–on their own terms.

Through our advocacy and accompaniment, we assist LGBTQ+ youth while they navigate resources that weren’t created with them in mind. We support youth as they explore and express their gender with our gender gear program, and break isolation by fostering peer support for and between youth. By finding community and receiving compassionate, knowledgeable support for their well-being,  LGBTQ+ youth build confidence, discover their resilience, and learn skills they will carry for a lifetime.

The number of people accessing P10’s services has been increasing. In the next year, we hope to meet the demand for more skill-sharing workshops, to develop more programming, and expand our ability to advocate for and accompany youth outside our office.
This #GivingTuesday on November 28th 2017, we hope to raise $15 000 to jumpstart our total goal year end goal of $20 000.

Together, we are building a future where all LGBTQ+ youth feel supported, safe, and able to define themselves on their own terms. 

Why do you give?

Heyy!!!!

Hey everyone! I’m Jodie-Ann, the new Social Work intern from McGill. I’ll be here on Tuesdays from 12-6 and Thursdays for drop-in until April (YAYYY) if you all want to chat. I’ll be doing group activities and soon I’ll be taking individual appointments, too! I’m super into talking about gender, sexuality and race, and how they all come together. I’m also here to chat with you about relationships, school/work stress and other daily life stuff you may need to talk about. Come say hi!!

PS: I love cats so please bring me pictures of your cats if you have (or pictures of any cat, to be honest).

PPS: I love to write poetry so we can chat about that too if you want to know about places in Montreal to share your art.
