GLYS Services and LGBTQ+ Cultural Competency Training

Due to budget constraints and extreme demand GLYS is now offering a quarterly services and cultural competency training. While once we could travel to you and meet your schedule, we must limit our presentations to what staff we have. For this reason, these trainings will be appropriate as "Train the Trainer" so one or two staff from your group/organization can receive training that they can take back and present to other employees, volunteers and family members at your organization.

 

Our quarterly training is free to attend.

AS OF NOVEMBER 9, 2020 DUE TO COVID-19

ALL GLYS PROGRAMS AND TRAININGS WILL BE TAKING PLACE ONLINE!

All training times are on a Friday from 1-3 PM
