who we are
Project Acorn is a radical community-building space for youth aged 16-24 from 2SLGBTQ+ identities, families, and communities.
For four days, Project Acorn brings together youth and those in solidarity with youth and creates a safer, empowering, and liberating space, where people can share knowledge, make connections and build bridges.
The program is a mixture of workshops, speakers, urban camp-like activities and magic that come together to create the most mind-opening and mind-blowing program possible. We want to create space to challenge the ways we think about gender and sexuality, and we want to be at the front of this movement!
A space to shine by youth, for youth
Project Acorn is planned with a ton of love and care each year by a group of individuals known as the Youth Advisory Committee. With the support of a wonderful Leadership Team, they meet from January through August to discuss every last detail of the Project Acorn program.
This means four days jam-packed with thoughtfulness and intentional magic designed by and for youth aged 16-24 from 2SLGBTQ+ identities, families, and communities.
Unfortunately, Project Acorn and the Youth Advisory Committee will not run in 2021 due to lack of capacity of young people from 2SLGBTQ+ communities to participate. We remain dedicated to serving children and youth from 2SLGBTQ+ identities, families, and communities, and will continue to seek innovative ways to do this throughout the year.
