Going back to college is always a time of nervousness for some students.  Each campus is made up of a wide variety of groups of young people who perhaps might be seeking a unique place where they can find support from students, seek advice or counseling, or just need a place where they can go in confidence for help.  A "safe space" if you will.  The State University of Oneonta is now seeking those who can help provide such a safe space for students on the campus...

SUNY Oneonta is seeking interested parties for this role. The Gender and Sexuality Resource Center is looking for facilitators for the upcoming year!

The Oneonta Safe Space Program builds awareness of the issues affecting LGBTQIA+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning, Intersex, Asexual, etc.) people and also provides training to the campus community to develop skills for allies. The program works to create more campus spaces where LGBTQIA+ people and their allies feel safe, supported and valued as members of the college community. The 101 training provides information around language, history of the LGBTQIA+ movement, and basic tools for how to be an active ally. Additional workshops dive deeper into various topics that are lightly touched upon in the 101 training.

SUNY Oneonta is ideally looking for those that have prior experience either as a Safe Space (or equivalent material) facilitator or as a participant in their program. If you are interested in becoming a facilitator, find more information by clicking here.
