MN Campus Alliance Recieves $5,000 PFund Grant

The Minnesota GLBTA Campus Alliance has been awarded a $5,000 grant from PFund Foundation for its Training and Education Initiatives Program! With this funding, the MN Campus Alliance will be able to train at colleges, universities, and community organizations around the state at low to no cost.  It will also be able to produce training materials and manuals for attendees.

MN Campus Alliance would like to thank PFund for its amazing, ongoing support of its programs and initiatives.

PFund Foundation is a vital resource and community builder for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and allied communities by providing grants and scholarships, developing leaders, and inspiring giving.

Train-the-Trainer Workshop

Time: 11:00am–3:00pm (lunch provided)
Location: Macalester College—JBD Lecture Hall, Ruth Stricker Dayton Campus Center (lower level)

Who should attend?

Anyone interested in becoming an MN Campus Alliance trainer must attend a Train-the-Trainer Workshop.  If you’re interested in serving as a panelist for the MN Campus Alliance, it is strongly recommended you attend.  You might also want to attend if you’re curious about bringing an MN Campus Alliance training to your own high school, campus, workplace or organization.  As always, individuals with any and all levels of knowledge, skill and experience with GLBT issues are welcome to attend!

For questions or to RSVP, contact Anne Phibbs, MN Campus Alliance Education Coordinator, at phib0001@umn.edu or 612.270.0212.

New Trainings Now Open

The MN Campus Alliance has rescheduled its Panelist Training for Wednesday, March 19 from 5:00pm – 9:00pm at a location to be determined (either U of M – Twin Cities or Augsburg College). Learn what makes a good “story,” what’s best to leave in (and out!), how to answer challenging questions, and how to be an effective presenter. These are skills that will serve you in all parts of your life, so please consider signing on as one of our panelists.

For those who are also interested in becoming certified trainers with the MN Campus Alliance, we invite you to attend a Train the Trainer session on Saturday, April 19 from 11:00am – 3:00pm at Metropolitan State University (Room TBD). Those attending this session must also attend the Panelist Training on March 19.

The MN Campus Alliance welcomes all students, staff, faculty, and community members to attend these sessions.  Both trainings are completely free, and meals are provided. If you have you ever wanted to share your story about being gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and/or an ally, and would like to be involved with the Minnesota GLBTA Campus Alliance’s training program, this is your chance. We hope to see you there!

An RSVP is required for both events.  To do so, or for additional information, please email Anne Phibbs, the MN Campus Alliance Education Coordinator, at phib0001@umn.edu.
