Community Empowerment Retreat for Trans* & Gender Non-Conforming Youth (ages 5-17)
September 26-27, 2014
Free to attend. Registration is open.
be empowered! is a Community Empowerment Retreat for Trans*/Gender Non-Conforming youth ages 5-17. The purpose of this historical opportunity is to educate and empower trans*/gender non-conforming youth to find and/or develop their best selves, as they grow into our leaders of tomorrow.
To achieve this, we will do the following:
Participants will engage in age appropriate workshops focused on self esteem, healthy relationships, personal narratives (telling your story), and community building. Both large and small group activities will be offered, and when deemed necessary, youth will be divided into separate groups based on the age ranges of 5-11 and 12-17.
Workshops and activities will be facilitated by community leaders and professionals.
This is an overnight retreat, for those who are able; and participants will be chaperoned by community volunteers, leaders, and professionals.
Both facilitator and volunteer bios will be provided prior to the beginning of the retreat.
There is no cost to attend this retreat.
Presented by TransOhio, Kaleidoscope Youth Center and First Unitarian Universalist Church of Columbus.

Interested in sharing YOUR story with us? Let us know!
I AM TRANS is a series of personal narratives highlighting trans* residents and their allies throughout Ohio. This series will tie into our larger educational campaign for the Equal Housing and Employment Act (EHEA). The Equal Housing and Employment Act adds “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” to the categories of people protected by Ohio’s laws prohibiting discrimination in housing, employment, and public accommodations, as race, gender, religion, and other categories have long been protected.
