Out Youth: Be a Beacon for LGBTQIA+ Youth

Mar 7, 2022

3:00pm – 4:30pm CT

Research shows that when LGBTQIA+ youth view school personnel as supportive, they feel safer, have fewer absences for safety reasons, report fewer school-related problems, and have higher grades. Join us as we dive deeper into the research, why we developed our online LGBTQIA+ Competency Training for K-12 Staff, and how you can make your school and your curriculum more inclusive for students of all sexual orientations and gender identities.
