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.
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 Adult Education Coordinator, Aisha Chaudhri, unless otherwise noted.

"The adults come away feeling much more equipped to be allies."
"I think anyone who wants to better support and understand youth of all identities should attend workshops like this that provide language and tools to do so."
"I liked that it was so intimate and conversational. I would recommend this workshop because it explains the information in a very simple and non-judgmental way."
"Very interactive and discussion-based, lots of activities, engaging and not boring."
"Great intro to sex ed and the importance of thoughtful and sensitive approaches to it."
