We strongly believe that ally development is an action oriented, life-long process, and we structure the workshop accordingly.
We hold three separate trainings: for students; for faculty, staff and administration; and for community members. This creates an environment in which our allies can freely share their stories of joy, their stories of sorrow, and feel comfortable doing so.
Each training lasts 3 hours, with attention given to the largest details (we feed you) down to the smallest (comfortable lighting). At the beginning of the 3 hour session, we cover basic information to ensure that we are all on the same page for the remainder of the training. After some basic information is covered, we continue the workshop: shifting between a lecture oriented approach and an interactive approach. From visualization activities, to discussion, to group scenarios, we aim to give our allies a “jumping off point” for their continued journey in becoming an ally.
