ITL has to postpone the fall launch of Train the Trainer (TtT). TtT, as an idea, has been in the pipeline for about a year and a half. And, for 6 years, we've launched new programs for the Fall. But, last Fall, we started to strip down our organizational structure for a re-build. When one of our co-founders received a terminal cancer diagnosis, that re-build didn't happen.
We have Peer Mentors with enthusiasm; we have excited new youth who have registered for TtT; but we are short of enough staff time and energy to carry the program right now.
It is a radical and powerful idea to give youth the tools to re-write Trans Cultural Competency training. That training is presented in hospitals, corporations, and non-profits every day all over North America. It teaches service-providers who we are and what we need as trans people. But trans lives have changed so much in the last ten years, the training must also change. I want to put that in your hands. I will put my 20 years of training experience behind your new presentations of what people need to know. Together, we will be a powerful agent of change.
In order to provide a better program for you, ITL will:
- postpone the program launch;
- recruit more adults and youth to staff ITL; then
- emerge with a powerful, well-aligned team.
Please accept our apology for this change in timing.
