Our Trainings

Below are some examples of the topics we offer for youth, adults, and professionals in our community. We offer trainings during the work and school week, as well as evening and weekend sessions. Evening and weekend sessions are limited, so we recommend that you try and schedule these as far in advance as possible. Every effort will be made to accommodate your ideal training date.
We recognize that all these issues affect individuals differently based on their gender identity, sexual orientation, race, class, and more. All our presentations are gender neutral and LGBTQIA inclusive, and with every presentation we do, we aim to affirm as many different experiences as possible.
All our topics are adapted to be age and culturally appropriate depending on the group and when requested.
All our trainings include segments on TurnAround support services and other important resources for survivors.
Our staff will provide all presentation materials and some presentations require audio/visual support.
