for newcomer youth

building a sense of community can be difficult when community services are not relevant or easily accessible to you
As a newcomer youth, your need for culturally relevant sexual health education, services, and programs is not being met. At Planned Parenthood Toronto, we are working to change that. We are committed to providing sexual health programming that respects your knowledge, values, and experiences around sexual health and healthy relationships.



Self-Esteem Health Appreciation Respect Project (SHARP)
Through our Self-Esteem Health Appreciation Project (SHARP), we can train you to engage your peers in conversations about sexual health, build their knowledge, and foster community.


For more information about SHARP call 416-961-0113 ext. 155 or email



Supporting Newcomer Access Project (SNAP)

Peer-Based Sexual Health Education for Newcomer Youth


What is SNAP?

Supporting Newcomer Access Project (SNAP) is a peer sexual health education and leadership project for newcomer youth in Toronto. We train newcomer youth in the city to become sexual health educators who then make and lead workshops all around the city. All of our workshops are free.


SNAP Activity Book

Thoughts on… sexuality, relationships and consent. This zine was created as a part of the 2017-18 Supporting Newcomer Access Project (SNAP) at Planned Parenthood Toronto (PPT). A huge thank you to the SNAP volunteers who put so much thought, care and dedication into this project, and to the newcomer youth artists who contributed such impactful works to this zine.

SNAP Activity Book

This sexual health activity book was created as part of the Supporting Newcomer Access Project (SNAP) at Planned Parenthood Toronto. The ideas and images for this book were created and made by SNAP volunteers during our 2015-2016 cycle of the program. We wanted learning about sex and relationships to be fun, simple and accessible, and so came up with the idea for a sexual health activity book.
