You can start learning online today with our first course, and we’ll be releasing more in the coming weeks.
Here are four, of so-many-more-we-could-list, reasons. At an in-person training, you have the chance to… Meet other people in your community who are interested in learning more about gender and sexuality. While workshops and trainings are awesome they often are just the start of the conversation and it’s great to have folks you’re already connected… Read more »
Foundational LGBTQ+ understanding & inclusion — online, at your pace
Google! We’re not being snarky, either. We suggest searching [Your Town/City/Region Name] + “Safe Zone LGBTQ Trainings” and seeing what comes up. Even if the training isn’t called “Safe Zone,” (and they often won’t be) you’ll likely find something that will scratch a similar itch. If that doesn’t work, reach out to any local LGBTQ+… Read more »
Safe Zone Project Courses are online trainings for self-directed learners to engage with concepts related to Gender, Sexuality, LGBTQ+ Identities, and Facilitation.
It would create a problematic power relationship, add to a specific problem we’re trying to solve, and is simply beyond our capacity.
This year we got to do a lot of awesome things, w/ some awesome people. Here’s to another great year!
You’re probably thinking “Oh no! I didn’t get The Safe Zone Project a present.” Awkward. We know. But we were prepared.
Why we’re not releasing a bunch of new stuff this summer like we have for the past several years.
We didn’t want to get in our own way, and we decided to focus on creating a(nother) free online resource and supporting from afar instead of flying everywhere.
A step-by-step, activity-by-activity walkthrough to plan, prepare, and run a two-day train-the-trainer retreat.
An academy for aspiring Safe Zone facilitators and a bunch of tools and resources for training trainers coming your way

Also, know that there is no formal barrier… Read more »
Depends. The material covered in Safe Zone trainings evolves over time — at least, it should. If you’re doing a Safe Zone where the material hasn’t been updated in years, it’s at best out of date, at worst harmfully inaccurate. And tons of folks do trainings using the “Safe Zone” moniker that include very different activities and… Read more »
