The curriculum in this virtual training covers an introductory "101” on gender identity/expression and sexual orientation, an overview of disparities in educational outcomes/experiences for LGBTQ+ youth, and an opportunity for discussion, allowing staff to identify areas where adjustments may need to be made. Follow-up discussions help to identify disparities in positive school experiences, gather demographics of those accessing support services and implement best practices to be modeled by other educational institutions throughout the county and beyond. The training is conducted by Rockland County Pride Center staff. The trainers, who are representative of the LGBTQ community, are utilized for this training, adding personal experience.
