Blended

In our current divisive and challenging climate, many lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBTQ+) students struggle to find their safe spaces, especially in schools.

To help members support our LGBTQ+ students, NEA is offering online blended learning courses to educate members about a variety of LGBTQ+ topics and to inspire action. These courses will help members create a more inclusive and equitable learning environment for all students.

NEA LGBTQ+ blended learning courses will be facilitated by NEA-trained blended learning facilitators. Participants will receive a certificate for 15-hours of professional development upon completion.*
