Upcoming SafeZone Introductory Training: "Becoming an Ally" will be announced in August 2014

When you register for the "Becoming an Ally" workshop, your learning will begin immediately! You will be given a link to view a short presentation to introduce you to the primary offices that collaborate to create this SafeZone Program: The Counseling Services, The Office of Student Life, The Women's Center, The LGBTQ Resource Center, and the Office of Affirmative Action. 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.By reviewing this material prior to the workshop, you will be preparing yourself for an exciting journey to become an ally!

When you then attend the 2-hour introductory training session, you will 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. Welcome to our network of Allies!!!
