Programs

Our team at the Fyrefly Institute are committed to working with communities and stakeholders to build a more inclusive, diverse, and respectful society. All of our programs are evidence-informed and research-based. Our primary goal is to help 2SLGBTQ+ youth grow into healthy, happy, and resilient adults. By bringing together research, teaching, service, and community outreach, we are able to create and support innovative and award-winning programs.

Professional Development and Consultation

We offer evidence-informed presentations and individualized case consultations for K-12 schools, government, non-profit, and community-based agencies who would like to build their professional capacity to effectively support the health, mental health, education, safety, and socialization needs of sexually and gender diverse children, youth, and families. All sessions are research-based and customized to your specific context and needs.
