The FORGE Trans Teens’ group is closely tied to our parents’ support group. Parents in the support group who have a trans/non-binary child roughly in the teenage years (exceptions on either end of the age range are made on an individual basis) are invited to bring their teens with them to the meetings. Teens then meet in a separate room with a skilled facilitator for informal discussions, sharing, and referrals. Teens also have the option of participating on their own closed Facebook group.

If you are or know of a teen whose parent is not in the parents’ support group, we would be happy to contact that parent to discuss the groups. Write parents@forge-forward.org to begin a conversation.
