Speak OUT is a 5-year, 3 phase project, addressing youth dating violence within the 2SLGBTQI community. Speak OUT aims to find answers about youth experiences of dating violence within the 2SLGBTQI community, and to inform a youth-directed intervention program pilot.

Phase Three (Now Live)

Applications are now open for Speak OUT: Building Solutions, the third and final stage of our multi-year project. We left the Hackathon with one winning pilot that we will use as a model, with the support of an Intervention Action Committee (IAC), to build our phase 3 intervention! This intervention will be piloted in partnership with five (5) community service agencies across Ontario.


Phase Two

Egale will host a collaborative 4-day virtual Hackathon in late January/early February 2021, inviting service workers and LGBTQI2S youth from across the province to join us in “hacking” solutions for supportive and preventative programming for 2SLGBTQI youth experiencing dating violence.

Phase Three

Egale and our partners will work with the winning Hackathon team, a committee of dating violence experts, and youth to put your idea into action! The idea selected by judges at the Speak OUT Hackathon will be piloted at 5 community organizations across Ontario over a 2-year period.
