Making the Annapolis Valley a better place for LGBTQ youth and our allies


Are you a young 2SLGBTQ+ identified person or ally in Nova Scotia’s Annapolis Valley who is looking for a community? Are you interested in sharing some fun and friendship? If so, the Valley Youth Project might be just what you’re looking for! Whoever you are, we’d love to get to know you. We’d like the Valley to know about us too, so please spread the word.

The Valley Youth Project is open to all youth, 25 and under, who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, asexual, transgender, intersex, two-spirit, queer, or questioning, as well as to straight and cisgender allies. We provide free transportation to our youth events for anyone from Kings, Hants, or Annapolis County.

Drop-In Social Nights

Drop-in nights are on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month, from September to June, at the Port Williams Community Centre. In September, we typically skip the first week, and meet only once. There will be a minimum of two adult facilitators at each meeting, plenty of fun, snacks, and, of course, new and old friends for you to meet.

Our gatherings are primarily social. Some activities we’ve done in the past include crafts like button-making or Pink Triangle Day cards, workshops like fiction writing or learning how to knit, games night, movie night, as well as field trips to Halifax. There is no regularly-scheduled drop-in during July and August, but we often organize summer field trips to Halifax Pride, the NS Youth Project’s Queer Prom, and other events.

Workshops and Resources

The Valley Youth Project’s volunteers can present workshops to your classroom, staff meeting, conference, or other event.  The topic can range from an introduction to gender identity and sexual orientation, to a customized strategy session for the topics most important to you.  Read more about our workshop descriptions and rates.
