Welcome to the Springtide Resources Youth Projects page!
We partner with youth navigating various forms of gender-based violence (GBV) to improve their economic and health outcomes by removing barriers to safety, wellbeing, and success. We employ strength-based and trauma-informed models of positive youth development to empower youth with leadership and advocacy skills to end violence in their lives and create social-change in their communities.
Family Matters is an intensive arts-based workshop series for 2SLGBTQQI (two-spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans*, queer, questioning, and intersex) youth (16-29) who have experienced familial homophobia and/or transphobia. The project works to support participants in healing from these harmful experiences, affirm and build upon their resilience in the face of violence and oppression, and provide increased skills and opportunities for youth to imagine and actualize lives built around and sustained by healthy relationships.
