They also provide assemblies and workshops for young people in and out of school, in order to educate further about the experiences of LGBTQ people.

Support groups are there to offer peer support as well as support from the facilitators of the group to young people. Their team attends trainings with providers for mental health support and specific training regarding LGBTQ centred issues, such as gender transition and coming out.
