Training Educators

In partnership with Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, GSAFE annually trains over 1500 educators, administrators, school support staff, and after-school program staff across Wisconsin on how to create safe and supportive school environments for LGBTQ+ youth.  Our trainings focus on building the competency and confidence of individual staff as well as whole districts to develop and implement CDC-recommended best practices for creating safe and supportive school environments for this youth population, including creating and supporting GSAs, creating “Safe Zones” where anti-LGBTQ+ language and behaviors are addressed, passing and implementing comprehensive protections and procedures, and incorporating inclusive curriculum and resource into the school and classroom community.

GSAFE trainings provide audiences with a foundational understanding of terminology and concepts related to LGBTQ+ youth as well as use local and national data to highlight needs and support district-specific strategies.  We strive to provide audiences with safe, engaging, and relaxed learning environment to ask questions and practice new skills and strategies.


Some of our more popular trainings include:

Creating a Safe Zone

Creating & Sustaining a Gay-Straight Alliance in your School

Safe and Supportive Elementary Schools

Supporting and Including Transgender Students
