Offering Education & Training

The goal of the Community Education and Training Program at The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Network (The Network) is to create safer, more supportive LGBT-affirming spaces for LGBT people. This goal is accomplished by delivering educational workshops and trainings for a variety of audiences. Through three of The Network’s organizations, Long Island Gay and Lesbian Youth (LIGALY), The Long Island LGBT Community Center (The Center), and Services and Advocacy for LGBT Elders – Long Island (SAGE-LI), The Network has been creating and facilitating LGBT sensitivity workshops and trainings for the greater Long Island community for more than 21 years. Last year alone, The Network delivered hundreds of workshops to thousands of people.
