Professional Development Events & Workshops
Friday, April 26
LGBTQ+ youth are considered an at-risk demographic. With increased research on and advocacy for gender and sexual minority persons we have come to a deeper understanding of the unique challenges faced by queer and questioning adolescence. This training will provide a framework for understanding gender and sexuality, discuss identity development, and explore how to support LGBTQ+ youth in a culturally responsive manner. These things will be achieved in an educational environment that is safe and stresses progress, not perfection.
Saturday, May 4
