Celebrating Pride Month 2024

At Broad Horizons, we believe in fostering a world where every young person feels safe, supported, and valued. This Pride Month, we are proud to offer free LGBTQ+ training, "Supporting LGBTQ+ Young People," to help educators, parents, and professionals create inclusive and affirming environments for LGBTQ+ young people.

Why This Training Matters

LGBTQ+ young people often face unique challenges, including discrimination, bullying, and mental health issues. These challenges can significantly impact their overall well-being and development. By providing specialized training, we aim to equip individuals with the knowledge and tools to support LGBTQ+ youth effectively, ensuring they thrive both emotionally and academically.

Our training covers essential topics such as understanding sexual orientation and gender identity, recognizing and addressing biases, creating safe spaces, and offering appropriate support and resources. Participants will leave with a deeper understanding of the issues facing LGBTQ+ youth and practical strategies to foster inclusivity in their communities.

Our Commitment to Comprehensive Training

At Broad Horizons, our commitment to training extends beyond supporting LGBTQ+ young people. We offer a variety of programs designed to address different aspects of trauma-informed care and support:

D.A.R.T.S (Dissociation Attachment Resilience Trauma Shame)

Developing Advanced Resilience and Trauma Skills, our D.A.R.T.S training program is crafted to equip professionals with the essential tools and skills to provide effective trauma-informed support.
