Anti-Homophobia Leadership Training: T.E.A.C.H.

Started in 1992 to address the growing need for anti-homophobia work in the city of Toronto, Teens Educating and Confronting Homophobia (T.E.A.C.H.) uses an anti-oppression approach to deliver high-quality anti-homophobia peer education activities in high schools and community settings across the City of Toronto.

Emphasizing skills-building and partnership, T.E.A.C.H. trains dynamic youth peer facilitators to lead anti-homophobia activities that encourage participants to think critically about homophobia and heterosexism in their communities and the issues faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth.  By sharing their own experiences of homophobia, T.E.A.C.H. facilitators help participants to confront their issues and beliefs around homophobia and heterosexism.

The T.E.A.C.H. peer education workshop involves trained peer facilitators leading interactive activities and sharing personal stories to encourage workshop participants to think critically about homophobia and heterosexism.  Our facilitators are between the ages of 16 and 22, and come from a wide range of backgrounds.  T.E.A.C.H. workshops challenge negative assumptions about gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and transgender people and show how these assumptions can lead to homophobic violence and hate crimes.

T.E.A.C.H is also involved in the community through outreach, partnerships, and the development of anti-homophobia resources.

Hear Me Out
In 2004, T.E.A.C.H. published a book of stories written by peer facilitators about their coming out experiences.  These stories are based upon the stories the peer facilitators use to engage participants during T.E.A.C.H. workshops.  Critically acclaimed, the book received attention across Canada upon its publication.
