The Edmonton-based CHEW project provides frontline support, resources, and education for LGBTQ2S+ youth and young adults (ages 14-29) facing barriers. These barriers may include mental health, violence, poverty, homelessness, substance use, sexual health, sexual exploitation/sex work, and more.
The Skipping Stone Foundation is a registered not-for-profit organization based in Calgary, AB who supports and empowers transgender and gender diverse youth and their families but providing low-barrier access to community and social, mental health and medical services.
Where the Rivers Meet is a program through the University of Alberta that is designed by two-spirit and LGBTQ+ Indigenous young people to empower and uplift fellow Two-Spirit and LGBTQ+ Indigenous youth.
TESA was formed in the hopes that building a traditional non-profit advocacy group would open opportunities for formal engagement with authorities who otherwise overlook the unique needs of the larger trans community.
The mission of the Edmonton 2 Spirit Society is to re-establish and enhance our traditional roles and responsibilities as Two-Spirit people in Indigenous communities while creating supportive environments within all societies for contemporary Two-Spirit peoples.
