Become a Trainer with Trans-Affirming NJ!
Want to Be A Part of this Project?
Become a Facilitator!
If you are an NJ-based trainer who has expertise in affirming transgender and non-binary people, we welcome you to apply for our Training-of-Trainers program!
Participants accepted for the program will be trained to implement a trans-authored, NJ-specific curriculum and connected with paid opportunities to facilitate the training in NJ. Through Dec 2023, trainers will also be provided with monthly technical assistance/professional development by The Transgender Training Institute team.
The TOT is open to people of all genders. We prioritize including members of trans communities, particularly those with intersecting identities that are typically un/der-represented. Experience with facilitating trainings is helpful but not required, knowledge of how to support and affirm people across trans communities is mandatory. Applicants accepted into the program must complete all three parts of the training series prior to attending the TOT. Costs to attend this program are covered by grant funding, so it is free for participants!
STAY TUNED FOR MORE DETAILS, COMING SUMMER 2022!!
