GWC TO HOST GAY ALLIANCE SAFE ZONE TRAINING IN JANUARY
Tuesday, December 17, 2013

The Gay Alliance Safe Zone Train the Trainer Program will be presented at Golden West College for all interested faculty and staff members on Tuesday, January 14, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the GWC Student Center. The session includes lunch and refreshments.

The program was created to develop confident, knowledgeable and effective SafeZone trainers who can help develop and maintain environments that are culturally competent and supportive to LGBT students, faculty and staff, as well as straight allies on their college campuses.

The interactive 8-hour course includes activities, small group discussions and opportunities to practice skills as educators. Participants who complete the course will increase their knowledge of homophobia, transphobia and heterosexism, and the effects that they have on an individual’s mental health. The course provides information and tips on how to educate others to create SafeZones, as well as guidance on offering support and where to go for additional help and resources.

If you would like to attend, please RSVP to Janice Iglesias at jiglesias@occ.cccd.edu.
