Egale’s free online Affirming Adults workshops can help you learn more about 2SLGBTQI youth and mental health, gender and sexual diversity, and introduce you to practical strategies for creating affirming and supportive spaces.
This online training is for parents and guardians of 2SLGBTQI youth ages 16 and under.
Supportive and affirming adults are essential to the health and well-being of 2SLGBTQI youth, and the active role of an affirming adult can be vitally important compared to lukewarm tolerances or discrimination 2SLGBTQI young people may encounter.
Education for supportive adults is an important step in ensuring healthy and affirming conditions are being fostered actively at home and beyond. This is where Egale’s Affirming Adults Supporting 2SLGBTQI Youth comes in.
