Time Out Youth provides several community education opportunities.
Community Safe Zone Trainings: The purpose of a Safe Zone Training is to create affirming and supportive climates through identifying and educating members of our community who are open to and supportive of all individuals regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression. We are able to tailor these trainings to meet the needs of your agency or business. These trainings are provided to the community free of charge and with honorarium.
Community Trans 101 Trainings: Transgender 101 Workshops focus on topics related specifically to gender identity and gender expression. Participants will be able to identify unique issues facing transgender and gender expansive students, articulate appropriate terminology, and increase their skill levels in supporting transgender and gender expansive youth.
Speakers Bureau: Time Out Youth Center’s Speakers Bureau is a unique workshop lead by LGBTQ youth. The goal of this program is to teach youth to advocate for themselves as well as eliminate bias, homophobia, and transphobia. Trained LGBTQ youth tell their personal stories of coming out and community/family acceptance, then answer questions from the audience about their experiences. Presentations can be scheduled as stand-alone engagements of one hour or as a component of Safe Zone Trainings.
Schools: Time Out Youth Center offers trainings for school staff and administration.
