This training will occur on Thursday, July 27 and Friday, July 28th from 9am-5pm. It will be hosted at Center for Spiritual Living, 1014 W. 39th Street, KCMO, 64111.

This two-day training combines a variety of learning styles including lecture, media sharing, small group work, professional and community networking. This training is built on practical approaches for people in various roles and levels wanting to work with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) and gender non-conforming youth. This training will focus on a variety of topics, including:

— Identities and Language
— Frameworks and Approaches to Youth Care
— Harm Reduction and Youth Work (Half-Day Training)
— Trauma & Adolescent Development
— Recreational and Youth Centered Programs
— Boundaries and Ethics
— Community Accountability
— Anti-Oppression → Popular Education

A full training schedule will be shared shortly before the summer training. We recommend that participants attend BOTH days, as they will build off each other and explore how to create sustainable programming and have effective advocacy for LGBTQ youth in the Kansas City region
