The Trevor Project’s CARE (Connect, Accept, Respond, Empower) Training is an interactive and intensive training that provides adults with an overview of suicide among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer & questioning (LGBTQ) youth, and the different environmental stressors that contribute to their heightened risk for suicide.
We educate youth-serving professionals on the challenges faced by LGBTQ young people.
In addition to the audiences below, CARE training has been presented to adults working in the foster care system, with adjudicated youth, with homeless and runaway youth, to spiritual and faith leaders, and many more.
K-12 school staff and educators
