November 3, 2017 - Less than a minute read

In its second year, the project is focused on preparing the next generation of social workers, teachers, school counselors, and nurses to better serve Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning (LGBTQ) youth and their families. The integrated project team is working with partners from the Children’s Hospital Of Philadelphia and The Attic Youth Center, a support community for LGBTQ youth, to examine courses, propose content changes, and create new courses that reflect new understanding of gender and sexuality. Field training is being expanded as well to include more engagement with LGBTQ youth.
