Safe Zone Trainer Training

The Safe Zone program exists on college campuses across the country to promote an ally network for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and questioning (LGBTQIQ) students, faculty, and staff. This training is available to any MSU students, faculty, staff members, or administrators who wish to facilitate Safe Zone trainings on campus throughout this academic year. Facilitators must complete this training to learn how to facilitate workshops on awareness, education, and being an ally. Trainers are not expected to be experts, but rather people interested in promoting tolerance, acceptance, awareness, and safe spaces for LGBTQIQ people as allies.
The trainer's training involves an initial commitment to go through the training on Monday, September 18th from 2:00-4:30 pm. After completing the training, trainers can facilitate Safe Zone workshops that promote education and awareness to classes, clubs, organizations, departments, and other entities on campus. We are looking for an academic year commitment from trainers.
