Transitions Program has ended, we invite you to check out our HUSTLE page for sex worker support.

Are you in the sex industry and would like to explore and develop other interests, skills, or career paths? Get assistance in exploring new social supports, educational opportunities, and work possibilities with Transitions!

What is Transitions and who is it for?

Transitions is a self-exploration and pre-employment program for self-identified men, nonbinary, and two-spirit people involved in all areas of sex industry who want to explore their interests and passions; education and skill-development; and/or transitioning into other industries or work. The program is available to all sex workers and others who trade sex for money, gifts or favours, and do not identify as a sex worker.

How can Transitions support me?

Program participants are connected to a community of peers, gender diverse folks and allied professionals in an environment of acceptance and diversity. As a participant, you will have access to:

  • Personalized, one-on-one case management.
  • Tailored, specialized periodic workshops on life skills on demand.
  • Referrals to groups, programs and services (at HIM and other organizations) to assist you with your needs.
  • Drop-in counselling hours for participants.

What would I be doing?

Coming for periodic meetings with the service coordinator where you’ll be:

    1. Exploring your personal strengths, assets, and identify challenges.
    1. Setting goals in the short, mid and long term and determining how to attain them.
    1. Strengthening your intra and inter personal skills.
    1. Creating new connections with HIM, the staff, peers and other folks in the community.

What do I need to bring?

Yourself and your ideas. Lunch and snacks are provided for meetings, and gift cards every time you come; as well as Translink tickets (valid for bus, Skytrain rides on all zones) to come and return to your appointments.

How can I get started?

You can access this program all year round, so is always a good time to get connected! You just need to contact with the service coordinator to set up a time to meet via phone, or e-mail.
