“My name is Scott Grace, I am a registered social worker and have lived in Calgary for the past 7 years. I’m really excited to be joining the BBBS team as the program coordinator for the GSD program. I’ve always had a passion for working and advocating with members of the GSD community so when this opportunity became available it seemed like the next logical step. I am amazed at the incredible work BBBS does in Calgary and communities around the world and I can’t wait to jump in and start learning the ropes!”
We’re starting a new mentoring program for Gender and Sexually Diverse (LGBTQ+) children and youth. The program will support young people who are facing social isolation, marginalization and other barriers, and need a caring adult in their life who has walked the same path. Mentors and mentees meet once a week for at least a year, doing fun activities out in the community.
