It is LGBTQ+ Center Lake County's vision to make Lake County a safe and healthy place for LGBTQIA+ people to live, work, and establish their families. One of the many ways The Center does this is by providing trained facilitators to help strengthen individual organizational competencies and knowledge about the community. Our trainings are intended to be judgment free, trauma informed and supportive spaces. Generally, these trainings last 2 hours and are most productive with 1 facilitator for every 20 people. We offer several pre-planned trainings and we do a great deal of customized work depending on the individual business' needs. In addition, we provide regular training to law enforcement agencies, court personnel, rape crisis workers, domestic violence organizations, government agencies, hospitals, mental health providers, schools and community centers about the specific needs facing LGBTQ, queer, questioning and HIV-affected victims and survivors of violence. Our training is available to any group or organization interested in issues of discrimination, safety and advocacy. This service is fee based:
Training materials: We will NOT provide hard copies of training materials, however we will provide PDF electronic versions for your use after the workshop. We will send materials electronically and ask your organization to be responsible for all printing and distribution of materials to attendees. We ask that you protect the integrity of our work and materials by NOT sharing them with others who do not attend training events we facilitate.
