We started the 2018/2019 school year strong. Our team did multiple trainings in mid August for educators in Southern California schools. The response was incredible and the impact of having every teacher at a school trained with our Stop Homophobic Bullying project is exciting to imagine. We have already been booked to do more trainings in the same district in January. And a principal who attended the training has already begun the process to bring us to their Middle School next August.
"It was exciting to see so much committment to this issue from Administration, Faculty and Staff."
The teachers who attended the trainings not only got to practice strategies on handling homophobic bullying in a classroom simulation, but they also got to hear directly from a panel of young people who are either a part of or directly connected to the LGBT communitty. The panelists shared their true experiences of when a teacher made them feel more safe in school, when a teacher made them feel less safe in school, and offered the teachers one suggestion of something they could do in their classrooms to make LGBT students more safe and included.
