Youth Line

Type of Service

Peer/Self Help

Program Description

LGBT Youth Line is a peer support line for youth 29 and under across Ontario. Peer support means that anytime a young person calls, e-mails, instant messages, or texts us, they reach a self-identified 2SLGBTQ youth who will listen to them and offer support, information, or referrals. Our youth volunteers are not professional counselors, and do not provide advice; through active listening skills, they provide a space for their peers to be heard, validated and understood. All the volunteers are trained on dealing with issues like gender identity, coming out, sex and consent, self-care, and more.
