IN-clued: LGBTQ-Centered Sex Education Facilitator Training 


Applications Open April 27th-May16th, 2023!

As of September 2020, more than 1.9 million young folks identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, non-binary, questioning, and queer (LGBTQ+) yet in the National School Climate Survey, only 4% of students were taught positive information about LGBT relationships and sexuality education.  Six states still currently uphold state laws prohibiting the discussion of LGBTQ+ sexual education and we see the effects of these laws. LGBTQ+ young people are disproportionately affected by unintended pregnancy and STDs, including HIV, with LGB adolescents being more likely to become involved in a pregnancy than their heterosexual counterparts. LGBTQ+ youth also engage in unprotected sexual behaviors at higher rates than their heterosexual and cisgender peers and are less likely to access sexual healthcare due to past or perceived negative and/or discriminatory treatment at healthcare facilities.

IN·clued uplifts the voices of LGBTQ+ youth & takes a youth-focused approach to education by providing an informative, understanding framework to truly inclusive sex education. 

The IN-clued program is an evidence-based sexual health education program designed to reduce unintended pregnancies and/or sexually transmitted infections (STIs) among LGBTQ+ young people, ages 14-19. Additionally, participants will receive in-depth training on how to incorporate effective HIV infection transmission prevention education more fully into their work.

Learning Objectives Include:

  • Why LGBTQ+ youth?
  • Stewardship and education
  • Allyship in healthcare
  • How specific activities may work in your settings
  • How to face challenges with facilitating these topics
  • Resources and improving skills
  • Relevance of increased HIV prevention education

This training is virtual; participation requires access to a device compatible with Zoom software, a stable internet connection, and working speakers, webcam, and microphone. Participants should also be able to successfully navigate the “chat” feature (i.e. working mouse and keyboard).

Certificates of Attendance will be provided upon completion of the entire training.

PLEASE NOTE: Application priority will be given to youth workers and staff from youth/social service agencies, residential programs, and alternative schools who work with teens and young adults at high risk for negative health outcomes or homelessness/out of home placements. Adults/educators who do not currently work directly with these youth (e.g. primarily work with younger adolescents, children, lower-risk populations, or in program administration) may submit an application request but will likely be placed on the waiting list until after the application deadline, and contacted as space allows.
