Changing the narrative
in Alberta.

Skipping Stone's impact is felt not only through the work we do directly with trans youth and their families, but also through province wide advocacy and awareness campaigns.

BUILDING
COMMUNITY
TOGETHER

We firmly believe that the strength and support that come from a meaningful, positive sense of community is one of the most transformative forces in youths' lives.

That's why we're so committed to actively programming a wide range of community events and workshops.
