BeLonG To: Digital Groups for LGBTI+ Youth & Professional Training

Our Youth Work Team are working tirelessly – offering one-to-one sessions over phone, email and text for LGBTI+ young people who are facing increased levels of anxiety and stress. We are pleased to let you know that we are now offering another support service and moving our Youth Groups online.

Earlier this week, Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, Katherine Zappone, launched BeLonGTo’s new online training

‘Creating LGBTI+ Inclusive Schools and Youth Services’

This exciting new online training programme includes videos, exercises and quizzes to equip education and youth service professionals to become better at listening to, understanding, responding to and supporting LGBTI+ young people – ensuring that you become part of a positive story in their lives.

Who is it for? The training is for those working directly with young people in education or youth work settings such as teachers, youth workers, guidance counsellors and youth club leaders.

How long is the training? This is a 3-hour online training programme. You can complete the course in one go or over a series of weeks – whatever works best for you.

Getting started is easy:

  2. Select the course: Creating LGBT+ inclusive Schools and Youth Services with BeLonG To.
  3. Click the button ‘Create new account’

I hope you will take this step to equip yourself with skills to support the LGBTI+ young people that you work with.
