Adult Ally Training


Adult Ally Training

Check out the upcoming schedule of Adult Ally workshops with ICAH. Our training schedule has been reinvigorated, so even if you’ve joined us in the past, you’ll be sure to acquire new experiences and updated information. Each Adult Ally Training is $30 per person and includes refreshments and all training materials. Discounts available.


ICAH’s Training and Education Department offers a variety of professional development opportunities for adults who work to support the sexual health, identity, and rights of youth. All information presented reflects our approach to sexuality education that is medically accurate, developmentally- & age-appropriate, culturally sensitive, trauma-informed, and inclusive of youth with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, straight, and questioning identities.

ICAH’s Adult Ally Trainings are developed for youth workers, family members, and other healthcare, school, and family-serving professionals who are interested in increasing their knowledge, improving their skills, and better supporting young people and their sexual health, identity, and rights. Trainings are facilitated by ICAH’s Education Manager, Aisha Chaudhri, unless otherwise noted. CDPU’s for Illinois Public School Teachers are available for each training at no additional cost.
