How To Be An Ally To LGBTQ Youth

Presenter: Laura M. Stanton, Certified Family Life Educator, Founder of Mind Seed, an innovative education and training company and GLSEN volunteer

In this workshop, we will discuss what it means to be an ally to youth who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, or questioning.  In a safe, open, and comfortable environment, you will have the chance to ask questions, learn more about working with LGBTQ youth, and learn how to be an ally.  The workshop will also include a panel of teens that identify as LGBTQ, so you can hear what their needs are and what they look for in an ally.  Please join us for this educational and insightful workshop.
