"A safe zone or a safe space is a confidential place where all people can bring their authentic selves and feel safe, welcome, and included. The Alfred State SafeZone Training Program aims to increase the awareness, knowledge, and skills for individuals and address the challenges that exist when one wants to advocate for their LGBTQ+ peers, family members, friends, co-workers, and for themselves."
Participants who successfully complete the 3-hour training will receive a certificate of completion that is valid for two years. Additionally, they will receive a sticker designating their space as a "Safe Zone." These stickers should only be placed in an area that is only occupied by the individual who has completed the training.
The faculty and staff members who are certified SafeZone trainers have successfully completed the Out Alliance's 16-hour Train-the Trainer certificate program and are certified to train for three years.
