teens educating & confronting homophobia

TEACH is a peer-based youth anti-homophobia/biphobia/transphobia education program. We deliver high-quality peer education activities in high schools and community settings across the city. Our award winning program brings diverse groups of youth together for frank, open discussions facilitated by trained peer volunteers.

 

confronting homophobia – empowering youth
We’ve been at the forefront of anti-homophobia education in Toronto for more than 20 years, pioneering programs that empower youth, debunk myths, challenge negative assumptions, and promote acceptance. We deliver high-quality peer education activities in high schools and community settings across the city through our award-winning and ground-breaking Teens Educating and Confronting Homophobia (T.E.A.C.H.) program. T.E.A.C.H. trains youth peer facilitators, aged 16-25, to lead anti-homophobia workshops that encourage participants to think critically about homophobia and heterosexism in their communities and the issues faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer youth.

These workshops are for youth in community settings, such as high schools, youth shelters, group homes, community centres, recreational settings, colleges, and universities.
