Thank you for your interest in our CARE Training. Please read through the following Frequently Asked Questions before submitting your request.
What is the CARE Training?
While our Lifeguard Workshop Program is for youth, our CARE Trainings are specifically designed for adults who work with youth. These trainings provide an overview of suicide among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) youth and the different environmental stressors that contribute to their heightened risk for suicide. The training covers what research states regarding reducing the risk of suicide and promoting resiliency in addition to best practices and practical steps that service providers, educators, and others can take to promote a positive environment for all youth.
