WHO ARE WE?

The Ten Oaks Project engages and connects children and youth from LGBTQ+ communities through programs and activities rooted in play.

EMPOWERMENT THROUGH PLAY

What we do is fun - and, lots of it! Our work is grounded in asset-based philosophies that use play to effect personal change, enhance self-esteem, develop leadership and foster independence. We believe that by bringing children and youth together to play and engage in recreation, we can build their confidence, forge bonds and facilitate understanding.
