fYrefly in Schools is an educational initiative developed to help reduce discrimination against sexual and gender minority youth, increase awareness of the impacts of homophobia and transphobia, and equip students with the tools they need to become effective allies for diversity, equity, and human rights within their schools and communities. Experienced educators facilitate student-centered and activity-based workshops with help from a youth peer education team. The fYrefly in Schools program is grounded in the fact that all students in Alberta's schools must be provided with a safe and caring environment free from discrimination based on personal characteristics including sexual orientation and gender identity.
