All My Relations: Supporting Two Spirit and Indigenous LGBTQ* Youth
This is a 1 day training to discuss resilience and helpful supports of our Two Spirit and Indigenous LGBTQ* youth. Topics include intergenerational effects of colonization, the unique two spirit identity and finding place in Indigenous, Western, and LGBTQ* communities, reflection on collective and individual unconscious biases, and supports and services. This training is unique in that, in addition to classroom work and activities, it utilizes a panel discussion with community leaders, elders, and youth.
This training is appropriate for youth, families, and workers who wish to deepen existing knowledge and explore culturally-based tools to foster support and inclusivity.
This course also includes access to an online resource sharing page once it has been completed.
- Length: 7 hours
