Often times, programs may not be equipped to meet the unique needs of Trans, Gender Non-Conforming, and Non-Binary youth, which differ LGBTQIA+ 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.
