Sexual Health Wellbeing and Drug Use Harm Reduction for All Islanders


PEERS Alliance supports those living with and at risk for HIV, Hep C and all sexually transmitted infections in PEI by offering a variety of programs and services targeted diverse communities.

Our center serves people of all genders and sexual orientations. We support those who use drugs in developing strategies to reduce the risk of negative health outcomes. Our programming strives to address the underlying issues affecting the health and welfare of our communities by countering stigma and creating environments where all are welcome.
Roots & Shoots: A Supportive Space for Parents, Caregivers, and their Gender Creative Children
PEERS Alliance and Sierra Club PEI Wild Child are partnering this summer to provide a safer & fun space for parents, caregivers, and their gender creative children! Meeting on the 4th Thursday of each month, youth (Shoots) between age 5-13 years will join Wild Child staff as they explore their identities alongside the vast diversity in nature, while their parents & caregivers (Roots) join PEERS staff to unlearn myths surrounding gender identity and foster a local support network amongst themselves. 

We will meet at Stratford Elementary (50 Glen Stewart Dr). Sessions will take place from 6-8pm beginning on October 24th, 2019. 

Roots & Shoots is a program based on the two most important parts of a plant. The Roots are responsible for nurturing and supporting the growth of Shoots, so that they may blossom to their fullest potential. Just as with plants, we know that gender creative children flourish in environments where they are supported, rather than stifled. 

Join us today! Extended family members & cisgender siblings welcome, pending availability. Light refreshments will be provided.

Note: The Roots (parent/caregiver) portion of this program will operate as a drop-in, no matter what age your child is! However, if you have a trans or gender creative child 13 or under who wants to participate in the Shoots portion of the program, please fill out this form
