This year, JASMYN is partnering with one of the states leading organizations on gender inclusive spaces, Equality Flordia to support our training that will provide participants with the tools and knowledge to create a safe and supportive environment for transgender and gender nonconforming students. Participants Will:

  • Introduction into a Gender Inclusive Schools framework
  • Develop an understanding of best practices working with LGBT students
  • Tools to help participants take perspective to practice through discussions of concrete strategies related to gender inclusive classroom, youth spaces and the school or work environment
  • Support understanding policies and legal issues
  • Discussion around commonly asked questions including bathroom and locker room safety, gender specific housing and gender specific programming
