Indiana Youth Group -- Supporting LGBTQ+ youth, building caring communities
Building caring communities is just as important to supporting LGBTQ youth as anything else IYG does. We want these youth to enter a community that values them. The most important part of changing minds is education…breaking down stereotypes, learning what the words mean, what the LGBTQ+ community really looks like and how to be a supportive ally.
IYG offers a variety of community education. We have provided programs on a variety of topics to many different types of groups and in different venues:
- Informal speaking engagements
- Q & A panels
- Workshops at conferences
- Trainings to professionals (social services, medical, educational, domestic violence)
- Church groups, church youth groups, K-12 and college classes, juvenile justice and youth services professionals, medical staff, high school professional day
Topics range from a general LGBTQ+ 101 to working with LGBTQ+ clients in specific situations. These programs range from an hour to 3 hours.
