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

For YOUth

Welcome!

Are you a young LGBTQ+ 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, transsexual, transgender, intersex, two-spirit, queer, or questioning, as well as to straight allies.

What We Do

Drop-in nights are on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month, from September to June.  There will be two adult facilitators at each meeting, plenty of fun, possibly snacks, and, of course, new and old friends for you to meet. For email updates about news and events, click the “Sign Me Up” button (to the right of this page…).

Our gatherings are primarily social. Some activities we’ve done in the past include crafts (button-making was a huge success!), various workshops, 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.
