The Sense Project relies on donations from the community.
Do you support holistic, comprehensive sex education for Montreal youth?
Show us you love us!
Why support Sense?
- Sense is not your sex ed class from high school. It’s sex-positive, not scary. It’s queer-friendly. And it’s animated by young people who are trained in safer sex, harm reduction and social and cultural aspects of sexuality.
- The 2005 Education Reform in Quebec basically phased out the sex ed course from the formal curriculum – leaving it up to individual teachers to talk about safer sex in each of their classrooms. Without training and resources provided to schools, sex ed is falling through the cracks. Supporting Sense means supplying Montreal youth with the comprehensive sex education they deserve.
- Sense is a unique, peer-based approach to sex ed. By giving young people the information and resources they need to make decisions for themselves, they are able to take control of their own sexual health, as well as spread accurate and empowering messages about sexuality to their friends and peers.
Every donation is significant and is an expression of your values. If you support the work that we do, help us sustain it! Donors, foundations, volunteers, and friends have come together to ensure that our workshops and peer education trainings make an impact in Montreal-area schools. Whether we receive a monthly $5 donation from a university student, $200 from a high school dress-down day or a yearly grant from a foundation, the sentiment remains the same: sex education is important!

We would like to thank all of the donors who keep the Sense Project alive, from private foundations to dedicated dance-partyers who shake it for sex ed at Faggity Ass Fridays, our monthly fundraiser.
The Sense Project is supported by financial contributions from the Forum jeunesse de l’île de Montréal.
