Fraser Valley Youth Society
The Fraser Valley Youth Society (FVYS) is a not for profit society operating in the Fraser Valley since 2000. We have gone from a group of volunteers running a drop-in group in Abbotsford to a board, staff and dedicated volunteers running drop-in groups in Abbotsford, Mission and Chilliwack. We have also expanded to include Youth Advisory Councils at each drop-in location and Education and Awareness presentations throughout the Fraser Valley. We are also the founding organization that hosts Fraser Valley Pride each year with our community partners.
Our main focus is to support 2SLGBTQIA+ and Allied youth in the Fraser Valley. We want to connect them to their community and to supportive inclusive help if needed.
Our current drop-in program is online and can be found here on Facebook.
The main service provided by the FVYS is our drop-in program which runs weekly in the communities of Abbotsford, Mission and Chilliwack.
FVYS runs weekly 2SLGBTQIA+ and Allied Youth drop-in centres in the communities of Abbotsford, Chilliwack and Mission. In addition to this, we provide opportunities for personal growth and leadership through our workshops, programs and community connections.
We are not a counselors, but we are happy to provide you with peer support and connect you to other helping professionals who are open and inclusive.
We facilitate at least one workshop and one group discussion each month. Topics include; Sexual and Gender Identity; Body Positivity; Safe Spaces and Community Engagement; and Healthy Relationships.
