teens educating and confronting homophobia – T.E.A.C.H.

confronting homophobia – empowering youth
We’ve been at the forefront of homophobia education in Toronto for more than 22 years, pioneering programs that empower youth, debunk myths, challenge negative assumptions, and promote acceptance.

We deliver high-quality peer education activities in high schools and community settings across the city through our award-winning and groundbreaking Teens Educating and Confronting Homophobia (T.E.A.C.H.) program. T.E.A.C.H. trains youth peer facilitators, aged 16-25, to lead anti-homophobia workshops that encourage participants to think critically about homophobia and heterosexism in their communities and the issues faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer youth.

Hear Me Out: True Stories of Teens Educating and Confronting Homophobia

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.
