Become an Ally

Do You Want To Become A SafeZone Ally?

To become an Ally, you will need to:

  • Attend one Introduction to SafeZone Session every 3 years
  • Stay current by attending at least one SafeZone topic-specific training session each semester
  • Attend Ally Networking Sessions or Safezone sponsored events 
  • Have a topic area that you want to share with other allies? volunteer to be a trainer! Contact safezone@k-state.edu

Upcoming SafeZone Introductory Training: "Becoming an Ally" will be announced in January 2015

When you register for a Safezone Introduction training you will receive information about the Safezone collaborative offices: Counseling Services, The Office of Student Life, The Center for Advocacy, Response and Education (CARE), the LGBTQ Resource Center, and the Office of Institutional Equity. This will help you be aware of some of the essential resources on our campus to help K-State and all its members be a safer and more equitable community.

During the Introduction training, you will also obtain more specifics about being an ally and have opportunities to learn some basic skills for being an effective helper. The interactive presentation is an exciting way to connect with similar-minded community members while strengthening your skills and learning new approaches to being a helper on campus. And it will outline for you the benefits of the various other trainings that will be made available to you.  When you complete the workshop, you will receive your own SafeZone Ally emblem to display proudly.
