Our Mission

To foster resiliency in LGBTQ+ youth and create a safe and positive school experience through support, education and empowerment.

Our Vision

LGBTQ+ youth will be empowered to self-advocate, build community, develop confidence, and easily access resources as they explore and develop their identities. School will be a positive and supportive space where LGBTQ+ youth are accepted and celebrated – free to learn without violence, harassment, discrimination, suicidal ideation or self-harm.
