Basic Rights Oregon provides training to community-based organizations looking to create more inclusive and affirming spaces for the LGBTQ+ community, emphasizing transgender, gender diverse, and non-binary people. We work with non-profits, private companies, state agencies, schools, and more. Training of Trainers is a program for people who want to help Basic Rights Oregon facilitate these workshops.

 

As requests for training continue to grow, we remain dedicated to offering impactful training services through intimate learning environments. Because of this, we need to build a team of passionate contract trainers we can call in to help co-lead these sessions with BRO staff when necessary.

Training of Trainers will help community members further develop their existing facilitation skills during an in-depth education on our curriculum. At the end of Training of Trainers, participants will be certified to deliver our comprehensive trainings that help strengthen the LGBTQ2SIA+ community throughout the state.

Due to Covid-19, all trainings are online. Training of Trainers is open to any Oregon resident with access to a computer and the internet.
