Young People as LGBT Ambassadors | The Proud Trust

Using the knowledge, skills and creativity of young people to deliver awareness to their peers of the issues faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) people can be very powerful indeed!

Equality and Diversity is a six-hour accredited training course suitable for groups of young people on school councils, youth councils, peer mentors, youth groups, gay-straight alliance groups and other youth action groups.

Through the training, participants will develop an understanding of LGBT issues in the context of broader Equality and Diversity. We will also develop the skills of participants to deal effectively with challenging situations which may present.

Following the training, young people are challenged to design and deliver their own projects to raise awareness of the issues and challenge homophobia, biphobia and transphobia among their peers.

This course is accredited through Open Awards.
