Making Room for Everyone - Building a Welcoming and Inclusive Program:

A Seminar for Program Managers and Directors

 

Target Audience:

This workshop is intended for program directors and managers who are responsible for program design and implementation.

 

Overview:  How do you ensure that your agency or program is one that is welcoming and affirming for all those who enter? Does your program or organization have a broad commitment to social justice? Have you intentionally created a youth-friendly space? Is it friendly as well to LGBTQ youth? How do you know?

With a strong emphasis on creating programs that are inclusive and affirming for LGBTQ youth, we will also address broader issues of inclusion for individuals from all backgrounds. (gender, race, religion, economic background, those with criminal justice, foster care or mental health histories, etc.).  Resources for program development and youth workshops will be shared.

Learning Objectives:

Participants will be able to:

(1) Describe the characteristics of a program that communicates respect and inclusion for all youth;

(2) Identify specific strategies and resources for inclusive program development;

(3) Gain skills for teaching respect and inclusion among youth;

(4) Explore ways to make youth programs LGBTQ affirmative.

 

Facilitated by guest expert: Elijah C. Nealy, LCSW, M.Div
