For an application form and more information please contact email@example.com
CHARGE Peer Support and Leadership Project is a project of ASTT(e)Q (Action santé travesti(e)s et transsexuel(le)s du Québec), working in partnership with allied community organizations (Stella). It is based on the principle that trans people are best equipped to provide support and resources to the people in their communities. The chosen candidate will be provided training which will prepare them in supporting trans sex workers in Quebec through listening, providing non-judgmental support, giving referrals, and organizing activities and special events. The role of the CHARGE Peer Support and Leadership program is to increase individual and community capacity to create networks of support and advocacy. In addition to being involved with activities at ASTT(e)Q, each Peer Support and Leadership Worker will be paired up with our partner organizations (Stella).
Next community dinner : February 2nd 7-9pm (first Monday of the month)

ASTT(e)Q aims to promote the health and well-being of trans people through peer support and advocacy, education and outreach, and community empowerment and mobilization. We understand the health of trans people and our communities to be interrelated to economic and social inequalities, which have resulted in trans people experiencing disproportionate rates of poverty, un(der)employment, precarious housing, criminalization and violence. We believe in the right to self-determine our gender identity and gender expression free from coercion, violence and discrimination. We advocate for access to health care that will meet the many needs of our diverse communities, while working collectively to build supportive, healthy and resilient communities.
