Supporting Transgender Youth

This workshop is designed to provide a basic understanding and increase awareness of issues faced by transgender students. These students, because of widespread misunderstanding and lack of knowledge about their lives, are at a higher risk for peer ostracism, victimization, and bullying. Participants of this workshop will have a greater understanding of the terminology associated with gender identity, inclusive school policies & practices, and why it is important to provide a safe and supportive school environment for these students whose rights are protected under the law.

MPY members, districts and other entities may receive up to 5 FREE in-service workshops each school year. In-service workshops are presented on-site. A minimum attendance of 25 is required per training. Each district/organization conducts its own preregistration. If a drop in attendance is anticipated or need to cancel, please call MPY, Inc. at least 48 hours in advance. The in-service may be cancelled at the presenter's discretion due to inclement weather or low attendance.
