Schedule a Safe Zone Training for your School!

 

GSAFE is scheduling Safe Zone trainings for the remainder of your school year – have you signed up for yours yet?

Thanks to funding from the Department of Public Instruction, the Gay Straight Alliance for Safe Schools is able to offer a free training for your school staff on how to create a safer and more welcoming environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth.  Trainings will include:

  • An overview of the experiences of LGBTQ youth in Wisconsin’s schools
  • Ways to incorporate LGBTQ issues, people, and events into your curricula
  • Strategies for addressing and preventing anti-LGBTQ language and behavior
  • An opportunity to practice responding to “that’s so gay” and questions that come up around these issues

Ideally, we request at least three hours for a Safe Zone training, but may be able to accommodate more or less time as needed.  Trainings are scheduled on a first come, first served basis, so schedule one soon!

If you are interested in getting a training scheduled in your building or for your district, contact Brian Juchems at (608)661-4141 or brianj@gsafewi.org.

“Words Hurt Week helped me discover the importance of intersectionality within all social movements – recognizing that we cannot make progress within the queer community without also examining the systems that impact other oppressions.”  Maria, Former GSAFE Youth Activist
