TransActive Gender Project

The TransActive Gender Project at Lewis & Clark provides a holistic range of services and expertise to empower transgender and gender expansive children, youth, and their families in living healthy lives that are free of discrimination.

Our Philosophy

We believe gender expansive and transgender children, adolescents, and teens have an innate right to receive uncompromising affirmation of their self-identity and that caregivers, families, and allies deserve to receive the support they need to continue doing what they do best; raising, nurturing, and loving the children in their lives.

TransActive delivers:

  • Professional development and community centered training and education;
  • Facilitated support groups for adult family/allies and youth age 4-18;
  • Advocacy related to gender diverse social justice;
  • Policy development/implementation consultation and guidance, and
  • Screened referrals to mental health & medical providers experienced in trans youth care
