For Educators, Businesses & the Community

Bridge 13

Bridge 13 provides educational workshops on the concerns/needs and joy/celebrations of LGBTQIA2S+ communities, with particular focus on how to better serve, support, and affirm LGBTQIA2S+ youth and individuals. The program offers educational and technical support in variety of settings—organizations, businesses, schools, healthcare providers, government agencies, and more—in and around Multnomah and Clackamas counties. Activities range from focused, singular trainings that address specific concerns to multipart series that allow for a deeper exploration of LGBTQIA2S+ equity. We are happy to chat with you about your specific training needs.

Training Options

Our customizable trainings can be offered virtually or in-person!

Bridge 13’s curriculum is designed to scale based on time available and the focus of your organization. Our comprehensive base training, Creating LGBTQIA2S+ Affirming and Equitable Spaces, covers many possible topics including unpacking the gender binary, examining systems of oppression that disproportionally impact transgender/gender expansive folks, interrupting oppression, navigating names/pronouns, etc.

In addition to our standard curriculum, Bridge 13 specializes in educator/school administration trainings that fold in ODE guidance/standards, foster parent/organization trainings, and trainings for organizations supporting houseless folks. If you’re not sure we’re the right fit, let’s chat!

Bridge 13 is continuously updating our content and adding new specialized training topics to our curriculum. Email us at bridge13@newavenues.org to schedule a quick consultation and discuss training options based on your specific needs.
