Session 1 (10:00am - 12:00pm): Ally Training
- This interactive training provides a basic framework of understanding LGBTQ youth and the unique challenges they often face. This training is designed to create dialogue regarding what it means to be an adult ally for LGBTQ youth by informing participants about terminology used in the LGBTQ community, the process of “coming out” as an LGBTQ person and a discussion of the challenges faced by LGBTQ youth in their homes, schools, and communities. Through activities, participants are encouraged to explore biases, build knowledge and understanding, enhance self-efficacy, and develop empathy. In addition to providing this framework, the Ally Training offers specific action items to improve the environment for LGBTQ youth.
Lunch (12:00pm - 1:00pm)
