The OK2BU Support Group is the first of its kind here in St Albert. Sometimes when things are free they are of no value but this is very different. This is actually paid counselling from Rivers Edge Counselling which would usually cost hundreds of dollars but your fee has been paid by the amazing people at the St Albert Community Foundation. Think about how much you can grow sitting with 5 other youth and a counselor who specializes in queer kids. Talking about the stuff that scares you, the stuff that you have accomplished, and to see what the other group members can teach each other. If you are scared to try or scared to trust, that’s normal. Just remember that the relationships you build at a group like this could change your life and last forever. Be brave for yourself and call the facilitator, Grant 780-460-0022 ext 380 or email him firstname.lastname@example.org and talk about it. He’s a really cool guy that I have talked to many times and you can trust him. He know all about queer people and has been seeing kids like you for a long time. You can also call or text me 780-990-6518 if you need support. Seize the Day!

PFLAG Edmonton has just started allowing youth 14 and up to attend the group. The content is mature so you can use your own discretion. If this helps adults and kids work together then I am all for the youth attending. Contact them on their Facebook page or email@example.com
