Safe Space Training

Safe SpaceThe goal of the Safe Space Campaign is to identify and educate individuals who will affirm and support all people regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity/expression. People displaying the Safe Space symbol are committed to combating hatred and discrimination through assistance and support.

The Safe Space Training is four hours long.

In the training you will learn some basic LGBTQ terminology and ways to make your language more inclusive, identify some of the privileges of being a straight non-transgender person, discuss the coming out process, and go over some ways that you can be a better ally to LGBTQ students on your campus.



How to get Safe Space Trained:

If you or your organization is local to Baton Rouge, Louisiana:

  • Email or call 225-578-4339 to setup a training specially designed for your needs
  • You may also attend one of our open to the public trainings by registering with the link in the right column of this page

If you or your organization is NOT local to Baton Rouge, Louisiana:

  •  Email or call 225-578-4339 to setup a training specially designed for your needs
  • If we travel to you for the training, you may be asked to help cover the travel expenses of the facilitation team

How to become a Safe Space Trainer:

If you are wanting to become a trainer, there are three requirements that must be met.

  • First, anyone who wants to be able to train others must go through the four-hour training with a current facilitator
  • Second, following the training, you will get an in-depth review of the training layout (including facilitator notes), and a Q&A
  • Third, you will co-host a training with a current facilitator followed by a review session

This is typically accomplished over the course of two days (day one covers the first and second parts, and day two is part three). This comes with a flash drive pre-loaded with our Safe Space booklet, all training materials, and training certificates.  The cost of this training is limited to printing costs of the booklets and a hotel stay and travel reimbursements for the current facilitator (if outside of Baton Rouge). Other than the program materials and travel, there is no cost for the actual workshop, however, we would strongly encourage and appreciate a donation to our LGBTQ Project fund to help us sustain these programs well into the future.

When you are ready to request a training, please email or call 225-578-4339.


Registration for the March 23rd, 2018 Safe Space Training is currently closed.
