Lévesque, Michel
New Horizons in Adult Education & Human Resource Development, v29 n4 p51-55 Fall 2017
The Comprehensive Health Education Workers (CHEW) Project is a community-based initiative that educates sexual and gender minority (SGM or LGBTQ) young people about comprehensive--mental, physical, sexual, and social--health and that supports their comprehensive health needs with other services. Since October 2014, CHEW Project staff have served as caring professionals building assets that facilitate young SGMs' resilience in Edmonton, Canada. This article profiles two of the project's comprehensive health education workers to illustrate asset building through caring professional practice.
