In today's world, Ally is a verb not a noun. It is a series of ongoing actions that we take to show up, show care, advocate, and to be there for LGBTQ+ youth in our lives. Ally is not something we do once. Ally is something we intentionally commit to doing.
The Ally: Verb training series contains research-informed tools, relationship building strategies, and resources to build your ally skills. Modules will help you build awareness of the lived experiences of LGBTQ+ youth and to understand the impact of anti-LGBT legislation on the current generation of young people growing up today.
The training series also gives you tips and activity ideas to help you encourage assets of PRIDE in LGBTQ+ young people (Possibilities, Resiliences, Identity, Development, and Engagement).
Each module can be completed in under 30 minutes. Though you may also want to spend time becoming more familiar with suggested resources, links, and organizations. You are also encouraged to take time to reflect on what you are learning and explore how to intentionally integrate Ally: Verb practices into your own interactions with LGBTQ+ youth.
The easiest way is to use the subscribe button on this page. Once you subscribe, you will be notified each time a new module is released. You will also hear more about upcoming events and news.
Mentorist can work closely with your program to provide individualized training and coaching. In addition to the free Ally: Verb training, we also facilitate LGBTQ+ Ally training cohorts, conduct program assessments and evaluation, and provide coaching for organizations that want to delve more deeply into LGBTQ+ youth inclusion. Please reach out to see how we can support you in your change efforts.
I would like to give special thanks to Oregon CASA Network on the development of this resource. OCN is strengthening CASA programs across Oregon that provide much needed advocacy and support for children who have experienced abuse. I would also like to thank my colleagues and friends who offered to review, share feedback and are helping to get the word out about this resource.
