Our Mission

LGBT YouthLine is a Queer, Trans, Two-Spirit* youth-led organization that affirms and supports the experiences of youth (29 and under) across Ontario. We do this by:

  • Providing anonymous peer support and referrals;
  • Training youth to provide support to other youth; and
  • Providing resources so youth can make informed decisions.
Peer Support HelpLine

For over 25 years, LGBT YouthLine has been providing confidential and anonymous support to thousands of 2SLGBTQ+ youth across Ontario. Youth (29 & under) can call, text, or chat to speak with a peer support volunteer six nights a week. All our HelpLine volunteers are trained peer supporters aged 16-29, coming from a diversity of 2SLGBTQ+ identities and lived experiences.

Our current hours are:

  • Sunday to Friday
  • Phone: 6 pm – 9 pm EST, at 1-800-268-9688
  • Text: 4 pm – 9:30 pm EST, at 647-694-4275
  • Chat: 4 pm – 9:30 pm EST, at youthline.ca
Youth Leadership Programs

The Provincial Youth Ambassador Project (PYAP) brings together 2SLGBTQ+ youth from across the province to increase 2SLGBTQ+ programming and supports in their local regions, strengthen leadership skills, and build networks amongst 2SLGBTQ+ youth. PYAP strives towards building communities that are not only safe and inclusive of 2SLGBTQ+ youth, but also free from systemic barriers and violence.

YouthOrganize brings together 2SLGBTQ+ youth within the Peel and Halton regions to increase 2SLGBTQ+ programming, supports, and advocacy initiatives. In small pods, YouthOrganize volunteers create and/or continue organizing initiatives. Volunteers have access to skill-based training, virtual community building, ongoing staff support, and project funding to see their community projects take shape. Through building relationships and engaging with local 2SLGBTQ+ service providers and community members, YouthOrganize volunteers learn about leadership, skill-building, and community outreach.
