This interactive and comprehensive training is designed to assist school staff, mental health providers, and other youth-serving adults in supporting the needs of transgender young people. Participants will leave better equipped with both interpersonal and institutional-level tools to provide not just “safer” spaces, but relevant and affirming services for trans, non-binary, and gender expensive youth.
