LGBTQ+ “Train the Trainer” Ally Workshop
5/3 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
North Shore FaithPride
HOW TO TALK WITH YOUR LEADERSHIP TEAMS, SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHERS, AND YOUTH LEADERS ABOUT INCLUSION IN YOUR FAITH COMMUNITY
Acceptance and inclusion are essential to the overall safety, health and well-being of all young people—especially LGBTQ+ children and youth. Having at least one supportive, affirming adult standing by them is life-changing, and sometimes life-saving. As conversations about gender and sexuality change, shift and become more complex, clergy, staff, and volunteers need both the most up-to-date information and a community of colleagues with whom to navigate the tenderness of ministry with young people as they come out, grow, and flourish. We hope this “Train the Trainer” workshop will offer faith leaders the resources necessary to create a deeper network of care within their congregation’s leadership structures.
Facilitated by Lizzy Appleby from Youth Services G/N. Co-hosted by Winnetka Congregational Church
