ROOTS & SHOOTS

Are you a parent or caregiver of a transgender or gender creative child? Roots & Shoots is a supportive space for families with trans or gender diverse children. This program is based on the two most important parts of a plat: the Roots (parents & caregivers) are responsible for nurturing the Shoots (children & dependents) to be the best version of themselves they can be!
No matter how old your child is, all family members are welcome to join PEERS Alliance staff & volunteers to have discussions, gain knowledge, and enjoy light refreshments in a non-judgmental environment. Bring your open minds and hearts, and learn best practices for supporting the trans or gender diverse member(s) of your family.

Is your gender creative child under 14 years of age? Bring them along for some fun with Sierra Club PEI Wild Child staff & volunteers and kids who are just like them! Cisgender siblings under 14 welcome. Register your family here
Roots & Shoots meets on the 4th Thursday of every month from 6-8pm at Stratford Elementary School. For more questions, contact Rory at youthpc@peersalliance.ca
