Groups are where the SOY community really comes together. We work to make all SOY groups welcoming places of respect, connection and fun. In groups, there’s lots of time for art, discussion, games and even field trips. Groups are places where you can make friends and also get the support and information you need.
SOY runs many different groups and some are for youth who identify in certain ways and others are for youth who share a specific interest.
All SOY groups provide a snack or meal and TTC tokens for those who need them. Groups take place in a wheelchair accessible space and some groups have ASL interpretation. For additional accessibility information, please contact the group facilitators directly.
