SpeakOUT Training

Click here to register for the fall SpeakOUT course!

Please join us for SpeakOUT, a workshop on successful LGBTQ Education. SpeakOUT training participants become more confident and articulate while talking with others about LGBTQ issues. We will focus on using your personal story as a tool for education, responding to questions mindfully and tips for respectful communication. A great experience for someone new to LGBTQ issues, or someone who has lived or worked with the issues for years. No matter your identity (ally, trans*, gay, lesbian, bi, etc.) this class will be of value to you. Think of it as professional development for your life!

The class is open and appropriate for everyone; all ages, all identities, all experiences and will prepare participants to successfully advocate for and address challenges to full LGBTQ inclusion. A perfect workshop for counselors, teachers, student leaders, Dignity Act Coordinators, and social workers!

Participants in SpeakOUT classes in Rochester will have the option of completing additional training to become a Gay Alliance Speakers Bureau Educator.
