Become an Ally
Do You Want To Become A Safe Zone Ally?
To become an Ally, you will need to:
- Attend one Introduction to Safe Zone Session every 3 years
- Stay current by attending at least one Safe Zone topic-specific training session each semester
To become a Safe Zone ally, the first step is to sign up for a Safe Zone Introductory training session. At the training, you will hear from representatives from The Office of Student Life, The Center for Advocacy, Response and Education (CARE), the LGBT Resource Center, and the Office of Institutional Equity. Each person will give a quick presentation about the resources offered through their office and be able to answer any questions. The rest of the session will cover basic helping skills such as active listening and how to make referrals. You will become an ally upon completion of an introductory training session. Once you are an ally, you must complete at least one Safe Zone approved training session per semester to keep your ally status.
Fall 2015 Safe Zone Introductory Training sessions will be announced HERE in August
