Our mission is to contribute necessary mental strengths and knowledge needed to progress through each individual's transition. Through SPEAR, we promote forward movement to help transgender adolescents cope with the inevitable challenges they will face within our society and within themselves.
What we do
Transcending Adolescence has created a summer camp program for transgender youth to have a safe space to connect with each other and receive support from a staff of trained camp counselors.
TA retreat sessions will be held in various parts of the U.S. to reach youth in more individualized settings. By working with small groups, TA staff can provide more direct support to youth who can benefit most.
