Safe Zone Training
We provide Safe Zone/LGBTQ+ awareness trainings to educate groups about gender and sexual identities. Our current training sessions are customized to your group and typically last 1-1 ½ hours. Safe Zone trainings are ideal for people who wish to receive education about the LGBTQ+ community to create a safe zone for all people. To schedule a training, send an email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 262-664-4100. Reasonable pricing and scholarships available.
The LGBT Center of Southeastern Wisconsin provides Safe Zone trainings for Racine, Kenosha, Walworth, and Lake County communities. Safe Zone trainings are developed to address various identities, issues within and outside the community, and ways people can be advocates for queer people. We use videos, testimonials, vocabulary, and scenarios to address these topics. The trainings will be done be trained staff and volunteers from the Center. Safe Zone trainings are delivered to the general public including, but not limited to: school staff and administration, businesses, social service organizations, and nonprofit/government organizations.
These trainings can range from one to four hours, depending on how in-depth you wish the training to be. We currently only provide the 1-1 ½ hour trainings due to specific topic requests and to allow for a short discussion at the end. Our shorter trainings do not go in depth about all identities, terminology, issues, and intersectionality in the community. We are currently working on creating different “levels” of training which will be based on length of time and how in depth you wish the training to be. In our experience, we have found that those who opted for longer training lengths felt they received a valuable, all-encompassing education about the intersectionality of the LGBTQ+ community.
