Youth Groups

Our youth groups are safe and affirming support spaces for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, nonbinary, queer, questioning, intersex, 2-spirit, pansexual, asexual (2SLGBTQ+) and allied youth. The groups focus on promoting the health, wellbeing, and empowerment of 2SLGBTQ+ youth through social engagement such as games, arts and crafts, and other fun activities. Group activities are hosted in-person. Online Discord groups are available for updates and resources. To attend in-person groups or to join and participate in the Discord groups, see below. 


Discord chat groups are available for communication with group facilitators, and receiving updates and resources. To join, click on the group for your age range.

Pozitive Pathways is also pleased to co-facilitate QLink youth and young adult groups monthly in Windsor. For more information on where and when to attend these groups, visit QLink 

We believe in the strengths and assets of 2SLGBTQ+ young people and encourage youth to gain leadership skills and contribute to both the 2SLGBTQ+ community and the larger Windsor-Essex and Chatham-Kent communities.

New youth are always welcome and can join either online or in-person. If you’re nervous about attending group or have questions, contact the  facilitator at,

Transitioning Families

We understand that being a parent, guardian or family member of a 2SLGBTQ+ youth can be challenging at times. Though we are not currently offering any groups for families of trans/nonbinary youth, we have developed the following resource for parents and guardians of trans and nonbinary youth, which was created with the help of local trans/binary youth and their parents/guardians. Click the link, download and free copy of the Guide for Parents and Guardians of Trans Youth.

If you feel a youth group is not for you, or maybe are uncomfortable in a group setting you can always call the Lesbian Gay Bi Youth Line at 1-800-268-YOUTH (1-800-268-9688) toll free from anywhere in Ontario.

Another great resource for education and support is Rainbow Health Ontario. This is a province-wide program designed to improve access to services and to promote the health of Ontario’s 2SLGBTQ+ communities. To learn more, please visit Rainbow Health Ontario.
