Meridian Youth provides support, education, and health and wellbeing promotion to young LGBTIQA+ people aged 15-25 in the Canberra region. Meridian Youth collaborates with other youth organisations and schools in the Canberra region to provide support and education regarding engagement and supporting LGBTIQA+ youth.
On the Facebook and Instagram pages, Meridian Youth has launched its sexual health and wellbeing campaign. This campaign works to promote sexual health literacy and education on healthy relationships, mental health resilience and communication skills for young LGBTIQA+ people.
Encampment 2022 is an overnight camp for LGBTIQA+ young people aged 13-17!
Encampment is an inclusive and fun space for young LGBTIQA+ people to gather and gain social support and build their social connections. Encampment aims to bring local LGBTIQ+ young people together, to support participants to navigate their gender identities and sexualities, and strengthen their connection to the community. You’ll get to hang out with community, participate in awesome activities, and have a full camp experience!
