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

Drop-In: Back at NSCC Kingstec as of Oct 19/22

NOTE: Because of the shifting nature of the pandemic, drop-in may be cancelled with little notice. Please confirm on the day of drop-in that the session is still running. Updates will be posted on the website and Facebook.

The NSYP requires masking at all in-person events.


Drop-in is open to all youth, 13 to 25, who want to make the Annapolis Valley a better place for 2SLGBTQ+ communities.

Support people over 25 who would like to meet the volunteers are welcome to contact us and arrange to meet beforehand.  However, for the confidentiality and comfort of all participants, people over 25 are not permitted to attend drop-in, except for facilitators and invited guests.


NSCC Kingstec cafeteria, Kentville.


  • Starting Oct 19 2022 we will aim to meet on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday from 6.30 until 8.30. Please do not show up before 6.20.

Come for the entire two hours, or just “drop in” to say hi!


On the agenda:

  • unstructured hangout time
  • games
  • a lending library
  • pamphlets and resources, including safer sex info and supplies, pregnancy tests, etc.
  • art supplies

…and a chance to meet people from all over the Valley.  We look forward to seeing you!


All volunteers and participants are expected to abide by our Guiding Principles:

Consent: Use the names and pronouns people request, ask before touching people, and before entering into their space; respect other users of the building.

Confidentiality: Do not share who attends drop-in or what people share there.

Co-operation: We all work together to build community and make this a great space. No racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, etc. Masking is required; please have yours on when you arrive.

*If you are experiencing any signs of illness, do not attend drop-in.

Access Notes

The Kingstec cafeteria is located on the second floor of the building. There is an elevator and a set of stairs for access. The washrooms are accessible.

The VYP strives to create a scent-free environment. For this reason, do not wear or bring scented products to drop-in.

For the health and safety of all participants, do not attend drop-in if you have any signs of any illness.

We are unable to provide rides at this time.

Weather-related Cancellations

Drop-in is definitely cancelled when Annapolis Valley schools are closed.

If an event is cancelled, including if weather worsens on a day when schools are open, we will strive to announce it by 3PM on our Facebook group as well as posting on the front page of the website.  That’s another good reason to sign up for email updates about new posts — use the “Email Updates” section on the right-hand side of this page to subscribe.
