What is SOY?
Supporting Our Youth (SOY) is an innovative community development program of Sherbourne Health. SOY is a set of health promotion services and programming centered on supporting the health and well-being goals established by 2SLGBTQ youth and young adults, many of whom are homeless, racialized and newcomers to Canada.
As a 2SLGBTQ youth or young adult you are resourceful, resilient and important. You are the expert in your own life and have found ways to survive and thrive. The SOY team is here to help support you by providing community connections, housing resources, mental health care, and goal planning strategies.
Supporting Our Youth is designed to support you to restore, maintain or improve your health and well-being.
We support your goals, strengths, resourcefulness and success
We can support you with:
- Goal Planning Service with Youth Resource Workers
- Evening health and well-being groups
- Mentorship and peer leadership programs
- Our Internal Housing program
- Health promotion and systems work
Guided by your goals, we work with you to restore, maintain and improve your overall health and well-being.
