For Transgender Youth


We know that young people struggle with issues unique to their being transgender--because we sure did.  We understand how overwhelming this can be, confusing and how isolated you may feel.  We understand you may be fearful of sharing how your feel with your friends & family because what they might think.

If you are questioning your gender, know that you are not alone and we can offer friendship, support and resources to help you communicate with your family, friends and school about your identity.  Education and socialization are two vital tools to help young people find personal satisfaction, gain acceptance and realize your goals of achievement. We want you to feel empowered.

Below is downloadable material and links you may find helpful.  We would love to hear from you and can put you in touch with others like yourself.
