Rainbow Youth's Professional Development Workshops

Rainbow Youth's Professional Development Workshops

Rainbow Youth has been delivering its sexuality and gender diversity education workshops throughout schools and institutions around Auckland since the 1990s.

This year, Rainbow Youth is expanding their education programme to address the
wider community.

Beginning on the 25th of January, Rainbow Youth is offering a series of full day training workshops aimed at healthcare professionals, teachers, tertiary students, youth workers, as well as parents and whānau of queer and trans* youth, who would like to better support those young people in their lives.

Rainbow Youth’s Education Coordinator Kestin Stewart says he’s really excited to be able to run the Professional Development workshop.

“It will be a great opportunity to not only gain a solid understanding of sexuality and gender diversity, but to also learn how to talk about these issues with confidence and sensitivity.”

Participants in the workshop will learn the fundamentals of sexuality and gender identity as well as how homophobia, transphobia and discrimination affect queer and trans* youth. Other skills gained in the workshops include dealing with such discrimination in their environments, the coming out process and also have the opportunity to hear a range of personal stories from queer and trans* young people.

All participants will receive a resource training pack as part of the course. Refreshments will also be provided. Registration costs $100 per person, $50 for students and $70 per person for groups of 5 or more.

For the full outline you can visit the Rainbow Youth website (www.rainbowyouth.org.nz) to download the PDF overview.

Those interested in finding out more about the workshop being held on the 25th of January can register via the website.
