Creating a Culture of Respect for LGBT Youth

We all have a responsibility.

LGBT youth are diverse, with complex needs.  To adequately support these diverse youth, we must first create a safe space for LGBT youth to access our services.

As professionals – and as human beings – we all have an ethical responsibility to ensure our services are accessible to all youth.

Recent research in the Canadian Journal of Human Sexuality found Service Provider recommendations for improved service delivery and programming for LGBT youth focused on two key areas:

  • the need for training at all youth-relevant agencies, and
  • the need for agency policy change.

You can Create a Culture of Respect for LGBT Youth. We can help.

We offer three levels of support to help your organization create a culture of respect:  professional training, customized in-service training, and policy development.
