  • ​The Intern Experience: Shaping Our Futures through H.E.A.T.

    My name is Jordyn Samuels. I am 25 years old and I have been part of Supporting Our Youth for 9 years. At age 16 my first introduction to SOY was through BQY or Black Queer Youth and at age 20 I was introduced to the opening chapter of SOY H.E.A.T. Already majoring in Equity Studies at University of Toronto and facilitating workshops around Equity, sexual health and harm reduction for 4 years thus far, H.E.A.T seemed like the perfect project for me to continue my learning and unlearning and to develop facilitation skills.

  • The Intern Experience: Working and Dreaming at SOY H.E.A.T.

    Getting to work on the inside of a SOY group has been a dream and doing it with HEAT has been absolutely incredible! In my position as an Outreach Worker intern, I have been able to use my own knowledge, experience, skills and connections to help take HEAT to the next level.
