If you missed this interactive presentation at the last Healthy Lamoille Valley Coalition Meeting, here’s your chance courtesy of the Peoples Academy Middle Level Gay-Straight Alliance.
The 2017 local Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) data tells us that our LGBTQIA+ youth need more from us. LGBTQIA+ youth experience higher rates of risk factors than their peers. Come join us and learn how we can create more inclusive environments and provide these students with the support they need and deserve. Mara Iverson, Director of Education at Outright Vermont, will be here to give an interactive educational presentation and provide resources. Open to all Lamoille Valley Families and beyond! Light refreshments provided and a free gift for each family that attends! Childcare is available for attendees bringing children with childcare needs to the event. RSVP on Eventbrite.
