Since its inception in 2004, Out in Schools has delivered hundreds of presentations, reaching more than 90,000 students, educators, and support staff throughout British Columbia.
We are an award-winning program that curates films that compel youth to step into the challenges and the triumphs of LGBT2Q+ youth and our diverse team of trained facilitators, some of the brightest young LGBTG2Q+ teaching artists, advocates, and change-makers in the province, lead our dynamic presentations. Out in Schools works closely with school districts, educators, counsellors and students to present workshops which are suited to the individual needs of each particular school.
We collaborate with the Vancouver School Board and the BC Teachers Federation to deliver presentations throughout Vancouver and the Lower Mainland.
In recent years, we have been expanding our reach to communities outside Metro Vancouver including Prince Rupert, Smithers, Haida Gwaii, Terrace, Vernon, 100 Mile House, Canim Lake, Williams Lake, Kamloops, Victoria, Nanaimo, Duncan, Parksville, Salt Spring Island, Nelson, Salmon Arm, and others.
