Safe Space Training- Napa Valley College is committed to providing a campus environment that is a safe place for all students to learn and for staff to work. As a college community, we value inclusivity and respect for others. In October of 2011, the Safe Space Program was launched to support, in particular, lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) students, because of some of the unique challenges they face. Recent studies show that 70% of LGBT students consider leaving college during their first year because of bullying, harassment, and fear. LGBT youth are 4 times more likely than their straight peers to attempt suicide because of the bullying, harassment and rejection they experience. This workshop is a face-to-face option.
