Trans* Jersey working with YES

Trans* Jersey is pleased to announce that it will be working with Jersey’s Youth Enquiry Service to develop a programme of talks, courses and/or workshops that can be taken into schools or youth clubs on the subject of gender, sexuality and sexual health.

The Youth Enquiry Service (YES) first opened in 2008. As well as offering a drop-in service for young people YES also provides one-to-one counselling as well as online advice on a broad range of issues.

YES was developed by the Youth Service in partnership with the Jersey Youth Trust. It was created to support young people aged 14 – 25 with any issue that affects them.

YES works with young people on any issue, for example, homelessness, benefits, advocacy work, crime, education, parenting, leaving care, drugs & alcohol, issues around sexuality, emotional health, relationships, sexual health and rights & responsibilities.

YES believe young people have a right to quality information, advice and counselling services. You can find them at La Motte St Centre, next door to the Social Security building.

If you or a young family member is questioning their gender or sexuality, YES run a confidential and discreet service that includes one-to-one sessions and/or group meetings with other young people where you can talk about similar issues.
