Schools without homophobia - Be an effective change maker in your school and more effective in mobilizing the team in combating homophobia
Dealing with strong opinions - Learn how to deal with strong opinioned students, who deny the holocaust, think homosexuals should be killed, Muslims should be sent 'home', women should be treated like property and Jews should be gassed
Strategic advocacy to mainstream attention for homophobia in schools -Assess the implementation of the right to education in your region or country and strategize a high impact strategy to improve it
Assess homophobia and transphobia in schools - This training is a workshop, which completely supports you to prepare a research strategy in your country.
