Welcome to iSMSS

Hundreds of sexual and gender minority (SGM) youth have been helped by Camp fYrefly and other programs. Projects like NoHomophobes.com have raised the awareness of millions of people around the world of the homophobic language used in daily online conversation.

This is groundbreaking work that is leading social change, and helping build a more just society for everyone.

We have been successful with limited resources. With your support we can do even more.

Watch to see first hand the impact that iSMSS is making

The potential to make a substantial and immediate impact on the lives of SGM youth in Alberta, throughout Canada and internationally has never been greater.

Through a new campaign to raise over $5 million, we are seeking to

  • expand Camp fYrefly into a national program;
  • expand research programs and services;
  • train the next generation of researchers and recruit master, doctoral, and postdoctoral students from across Canada and the world;
  • create an endowment to help support core operating funding.

2013 is the 10th anniversary of Camp fYrefly, which has helped more than 1000 sexual and gender minority youth find the resiliency and skills they need to become future leaders.

Our birthday wish is to light the way to a brighter tomorrow.

Knowing you have profoundly changed a young person’s life for the better is a feeling beyond compare.
