Make Hallways Brighter for LGBT2Q+ Youth!

This holiday season, we invite you to join us in #MakingHallwaysBright for queer, trans, and Two-Spirit youth across the province!

The Out in Schools program uses film, stories, and discussion to fight homophobia, transphobia, and bullying in BC schools.

In the 2016/2017 school year, Out in Schools reached over 23,000 students and 4,700 adults. This is more than double the amount of students and educators reached in the 2015/2016 school year, and the demand for our programming continues to grow. We need your help to reach even more youth in the upcoming year!

 

From now until December 31st, all donations made to Out in Schools – either online or in-person at Scotiabank Robson & Bute branch (1205 Robson St., Vancouver) – are being matched by Scotiabank, dollar-for-dollar, up to $5,000!

 

By giving to #MakingHallwaysBright, you help ensure that BC schools will continue to become safer and more inclusive.

“Just awesome. I am so grateful for what you’re doing and believe the information you’re sharing is so valuable for adults and kids alike. Thank you for sharing your story – and the stories of others. I believe individuals and groups like yours are truly making this world a better place…thank you for being you, and for doing what you do.”

“I am queer and I overhear homophobic remarks quite a lot, so I wanted to thank you for educating youth and making schools safer for all. Knowing that there are supportive organizations in the world is overwhelming in the best way possible.”
