It is important that folks understand a bit about the LGBTQ+ community. It is a significant part of society and many homeless youth are dealing with families who do not understand or accept them. This training consists of a short introductory-level video, however, more research and investigation is recommended.

Lessons on LGBTQI+
Personal biases are formed from generalizations that have unconsciously accumulated throughout a lifetime and therefore cause an individual to view the world through a specific lens that influences their decisions and actions. Becoming aware of our own personal biases will surely contribute to a healthier understanding of our own selves so that we can more fully show up for others.
Within today's societal standards and ideologies, a level of privilege exists within the white individual that often goes unacknowledged. As youth of different races are placed into homes that may not match their own skin tones or ethnicities, it is important to understand racial awareness. It will be an essential factor to consider within the process of making a child feel comfortable within their living environment. This training will dig deeper into this topic.

This training will discuss the ins and outs of classism; when individuals are treated differently based on their social status. In situations where youth that face homelessness are brought into economically stable households, there can often be many unexpected emotions as they process and get used to a new environment.

This training is aimed to identify and discuss the ways in which adults can impede upon youth's lives from a place of good intention and care.

We believe that communication is central to the success of any relationship. In this training, we will focus on Non-Violent Communication (a method of communicating that is adopted from Ghandi's movement of non-violence and doing no harm) as a means to resolve conflicts and practice healthy communication between the youth and the family. Communication based on honesty and empathy. It helps us understand the needs and values that we all have in common.
