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

Lara Brooks consults, trains, and teaches on accessible and visionary program design, system evaluation, harm reduction, and community accountability practices. Currently, Brooks is the Vice President of Programs at San Francisco AIDS Foundation. Previously, Brooks was a long-time Chicago-based consultant, youth worker and organizer and has supported LGBTQ youth, survivors of violence, and youth experiencing homelessness since 2001. Brooks was a driving force behind the Chicago Youth Storage Initiative, a citywide storage project for youth experiencing homelessness, and also worked at Howard Brown Health's Broadway Youth Center between 2005-2013.

The $40 registration fee covers instruction, actvities and educational materials for both training days.
