Mateo Llanillos


Mateo is proud of being part of the Counselling team at Rainbow Resource Centre.

Mateo has been connected to Rainbow within different capacities. For over a decade Mateo has been the facilitator of Rainbow’s Transmasculine Support Group and was a previous volunteer in Rainbow’s Youth Program. Mateo recently graduated from the University of Manitoba’s Inner City Social Work Program and is excited to continue working within the 2SLGBTQ+ community.

Mateo admires the resiliency of youth and recognizes the contribution of key protective factors, such as programs that offer space for youth to feel safe and validated, such as Rainbow’s Youth Program. Facing adversity begins with strengthening protective factors in the environment.
