LGBTQ 101: Making Safe Spaces for LGBTQ Youth
This session is for front line staff interacting with youth in agencies interested in being more welcoming to LGBTQ young people. The discussion begins with unpacking terminology and the power of language in creating a more inclusive space. We will explore various experiences, struggles, and challenges that LGBTQ identified youth face. The session concludes with some basic and attainable steps that each staff member can make to make your facility, activity, or program more inclusive to anyone along the LGBTQ spectrum. Participants will learn how to present themselves as safe adult allies for youth.
