ASOST Training - Supporting Trans and GNC Youth

Friday, June 11, 2021 - 10:00am to 12:00pm

Often times, programs may not be equipped to meet the unique needs of Trans, Gender Non-Conforming, and Non-Binary youth, which differ LGBQ youth community. This training will show the necessity of building both staff and institutional knowledge and skills, as well as policies and procedures that create a safer and more inclusive environment for this population of youth. In this interactive workshop, we’ll engage in a critical discussion about the role that programs play in protecting and supporting Trans, Gender Non-Conforming, and Non-Binary youth. Participants will clarify terms and definition and learn strategies to enhance programming to best support these youth, program staff, and/or mentors/volunteers.
