Acceptance Week Program

Modeling Safe and Affirming Schools for LGBTQ Students

Being yourself shouldn't be a privilege.

While at school, LGBTQ youth face disproportion adversity and hardships. We work with schools to create evidence-based programming that fosters an accepting and supportive campus climate for their students. 

This program is available at no-cost to schools in the US and UK. 


Each program is uniquely tailored to fit student needs at each campus 


We cover all associated costs, ensuring program accessibility


We create effective programing by engaging  students, staff and teachers in the process.

Creating Change, 

One School at a Time.
