COVID-19: How Your Support Helps Women and Girls During the Pandemic

Rural Education and Leadership Program for GSAs (R.E.A.L. Program)

The Youth Project, Halifax

The R.E.A.L. program will engage students who are involved in Gay-Straight Alliances (GSAs) in five rural areas across the province, helping them develop leadership skills and educate their school communities. Creating confident GSA students and a more educated and welcoming community will reduce violence. By providing support, the project builds resilience in the youth who can change the culture in those schools. Although this is a new program, it builds on the 2016 Safer Schools Initiative. The new program responds to the need for support in rural communities.

Grant amount: $17,446
