Gender Independent Kids

Kids do not like being confined to the boxes of gender expectations that are everywhere in our world, and many kids express this resistance early on in their lives. This page offers some resources to support adults and kids with gender independence on their minds. Let us know at outontheshelf@gmail.com  if you would like to see something added or changed or if you have any questions. Furthermore, questions, provider referrals and other training can be made by contacting education@archguelph.ca.
