Trailblazers is the only program in Canada supporting children and youth with a facial difference and their families. Trailblazers helps children and youth connect through activities, grow, and learn in different ways to maintain strong mental and social health.
Programs for every age.
Using the power of peer support, the Peer2Peer program is a valuable and critical resource for the facial difference community. The goals of Peer2Peer are empowerment, building resilience, and offering a safe, nonjudgmental, and supportive space for sharing.
Created in collaboration with the facial difference community, teachers, and social workers, “A Lesson from Frankie and Pearl” is a unique program aimed at building acceptance and understanding of facial differences in schools and other settings.
Hosted by social worker and facial difference community member Colleen Wheatley MSW, and members of the community sharing their own experiences, these quarterly webinars touch on a variety of topics for parents and guardians, and children and youth.
AboutFace is looking for hardworking, dedicated, and engaging individuals who have a passion for making a difference. Learn more about our current volunteer opportunities and support us today!
