The LGBTQ Academy SpeakOUT training is an interactive, experiential training that focuses on building confidence in our ability to have articulate, knowledgeable and respectful conversations around LGBTQ+ identities and inclusion. A valuable experience for someone new to LGBTQ+ advocacy or for someone who has been active for years. This training is perfect for teachers, counselors, social workers, DASA Coordinators, GSA advisers, parents, and anyone who wants to make a difference! The class is open to everyone and will prepare participants to respectfully and successfully advocate for and address challenges to full LGBTQ+ inclusion.
NOTE: The prerequisite for this training is the LGBTQ Academy’s SafeZone Training. Participants in SpeakOUT classes in Rochester will have the option of completing additional training to become an LGBTQ Academy Speakers Bureau Educator.
