Challenges

  • GBT youth from communities of colour might be initially reluctant to participate in a group of strangers.
  • Getting youth to devote themselves to an entire weekend retreat may be challenging, particularly the first time such a workshop is offered; sufficient recruitment time and effort must be factored into the planning.
  • Participants in the program may find the transition/adjustment back to their “regular lives” difficult after a positive experience during the retreat; follow-up programming may be required.
