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

The Wolfville Area Pride Group is presenting a Harvest Pride celebration from October 21 – 25, 2015.  You can read the list of activities and events on their Pride October 2015 poster,  and keep up with event updates at their Facebook Page,  Wolfville Area Pride Group.

The Valley Youth Project has been specifically invited to help out with two events:  the Pride Flag Raising at 12:00 noon, Saturday Oct. 24 in Waterfront Park, Wolfville; and The Choir for Social Change concert, at 7:30 pm, October 24  in the Horton High School Performance Centre, Greenwich.

We have been asked to speak at the Pride Flag Raising. One of our facilitators, Myléne, will be saying a few words about the VYP, and they would be pleased if any of you Drop In participants or any LGBTQ+ Youth in the area would like to join them. Even if you don’t want to speak publicly, the VYP and Wolfville Area Pride Group would love to have you to be a part of the Flag Raising ceremony.

The Choir for Social Change Concert includes the voices of the Annapolis Valley Honour Choir, and Vox. Proceeds from this concert will be donated to the Valley Youth Project and the Don’t Be Afraid campaign. The Concert organizers invite volunteers to help out at this concert by taking tickets at the door, and handing out programs, or by being at the VYP information table along with the VYP facilitators, Krista, Myléne, Mike and Tim. You would have to show up at the Horton High School at about 6:30 pm, to greet concert goers,  and then you could stay for the concert.

If you would like to volunteer to join the VYP at either, or both, of these events, please message us with the ‘Contact Us’ button, or email us at valleyyouthproject@gmail.com and we’ll make arrangements.  If you think you would like to volunteer at the Concert, please let us know by Monday Oct. 19.

Hopefully you’ll be able to take in some or all of the activities.
