ZBGC Youth Project

The ZBGC Youth Project is part of the Healthy Equal Youth (HEY) partnership, funded by the Victorian State Government to improve the lives and wellbeing of LGBTIQA+ young people and their families.

The ZBGC Youth Project partially funds the positions of the Youth Project Officer, currently held by Rory, and the ZBGC Program Manager, currently held by Starlady.

The ZBGC Youth Project works with and advocates for trans and gender diverse (TGD) youth and their families to ensure that their rights, health and wellbeing are being advanced and protected.

As part of the Youth Project, the ZBGC:

  • Provides youth-focused TGD inclusive practice training across the health and human services sector
  • Offers youth workshops to help LGBTIQA+ and TGD young people feel empowered in their identities, relationships, peer groups, school, work and home environments
  • Creates resources including posters, promoting the self-determination of TGD young people
  • Provides secondary consultation to peak bodies, research initiatives, and government institutions to about TGD inclusive practice, to ensure TGD young people are being actively included in strategies/programs to improve their health and wellbeing.
