Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer or questioning (LGBTQ) youth are at higher risk than their non-LGBTQ peers of being verbally or physically harassed or assaulted with negative consequences for their mental and physical health as well as their academic achievement.

Step In, Speak Up! is a 30-minute online interactive training program that helps youth-serving adults understand the challenges that LGBTQ youth face and gives them a chance to practice techniques for creating a safer and more supportive environment, including 1) curtailing instances of harassment and use of homophobic language, and 2) connecting with a student who has been the target of harassment.
