About this Training


The UNC-CH LGBTQ Center offers over 30 Standard Safe Zone trainings per year across campus and in the local community. We meet this demand with the help of Volunteer Facilitators. Recently, the Center is facing increasing requests to provide Safe Zones for health care professionals. In response to this need, we have created a Health Care Safe Zone, with a curriculum that covers LGBTQ health disparities, health resources, and common health professional scenarios, along with a terminology primer and strategies for allyship. We are looking for individuals knowledgeable on health care to join our Health Care Facilitation Team.


Health Care Safe Zone Facilitator Training is a four-hour training that covers best practices for facilitating group discussions, presenting information, and dealing with difficult questions and topics. It will also go over the curriculum for the Health Care Safe Zone. Once individuals complete Health Care Safe Zone Facilitator Training, they can start co-facilitating Health Care Safe Zones organized by and alongside of LGBTQ Center Staff.


There is no expectation to how many trainings facilitators help with. Some of our facilitators are only available to help with one training a year, while others are able to facilitate 5-6 trainings. We appreciate any level of commitment!



Prerequisites for Health Care Facilitator Training:


  • Status as an employee or student within UNC or the UNC Health Care system.
  • Completion of Safe Zone training (4-hour foundational training).
