GLSEN Washington State Training Program
Professional Development or Training for Schools, Districts or Community Organizations
Bullying affects millions of students every year and is among the most profound problems schools face. The behavior is particularly harmful to LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) students. However, the presence of supportive educators who can intervene appropriately and effectively to address bullying has a direct correlation with improved educational outcomes for students. GLSEN's research shows that LGBT students who can identify supportive school staff report a greater sense of safety at school, skipping school less often and a stronger commitment to continuing their education through high school and beyond.
GLSEN is working with school districts across the country to implement training programs to help educators learn how to make their school safer for all students.
