What is SOY?
As an LGBT2SQ youth or young adult, you are resourceful and important. You are the expert of your own life and have found ways to survive if not thrive.
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 LGBT2SQ youth and young adults, many of whom are homeless, racialized and newcomers to Canada.
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.
Explore your goals with peers in our weekly health and well-being groups
