Diversity & Inclusion for Calgary Youths

Celebrate What Makes You, You

You deserve acceptance, and we’re here to help you feel heard.

We understand that the challenges youths face in LGBTQ2S+, minority, and differently-abled communities can be difficult to overcome alone. That’s why we’re here to offer a supportive ear, providing a safe space to talk freely and confidentially. 

We want you to know that you’re not alone and that we’re available for help whenever you need it. Whether you’re in crisis or need someone to talk openly with, no matter the situation, we’ll give you our full attention so you don’t face struggles alone.

How We Help

ConnecTeen is a peer-based helpline where you can talk about your concerns in a confidential, judgment-free space. 

Here, you can talk to someone who genuinely cares and relates to your struggles. Our volunteers are passionate about helping you navigate life’s obstacles, including those involving gender and identity, sexual health, race, and so much more.

Talk, text, or chat online with us today.


Our support doesn’t stop at the helpline. We can provide a wealth of resources to help you understand and overcome distressing moments. These resources address:

  • Coming out
  • Relationships with friends, family, & partners
  • Bullying, harassment, & racism
  • Social isolation
  • STIs & HIV

Even if you simply need to chat, we’re all ears. Check out our list of resources, or get in touch with us for specific concerns you may have. For additional resources, please contact 211 to connect with professionals right for you.
