Join us & attend our webinars to learn about the LGBTQ+ community. Each session is led by subject matter experts, working hands-on in our community with a local nonprofit.
LGBTQ Equity and Inclusion
The webinar will discuss the fundamentals of the LGBTQ+ communities and best practices working with these communities. The course features videos, interactive animations, PDF documents, as well as guides on how to implement LGBTQ+ inclusive practices in your organization. All registered attendees will have access to the recorded version for 2 weeks.
LGBTQI+ Youth Homelessness: An Invisible Crisis
LGBTQI+ youth are disproportionately represented in homeless youth counts. They endure higher rates of adversity, and face more discrimination in housing, education and employment than their straight or cisgender peers. This session discusses the issue of LGBTQI+ youth homelessness in the Twin Cities, what Avenues is doing to support LGBTQI+ youth, and how community members can become involved. Avenues for Youth supports LGBTQI+ through all of its programs. And the ConneQT host home program provides culturally responsive housing support for youth who identify as LGBTQI+ within their community of choice. All registered attendees will have access to the recorded version for 2 weeks.
