Trans Youth Equality Foundation
Education, advocacy, and support for transgender youth and their families
The Trans Youth Equality Foundation provides education, advocacy and support for transgender and gender non-conforming children and youth and their families. Our mission is to share information about the unique needs of this community, partnering with families, educators and service providers to help foster a healthy, caring, and safe environment for all transgender children.
Back To School!
Be a great advocate, ask your kids what they need, spend some extra time before school starts, make school shopping a fun and "safe" experience and really listen as your child shares how they want to identify. Knowing school rights and best practices is a critical part of being a good self advocate or advocating for a child.
