The first national coalition dedicated to making schools safer and more inclusive for same sex attracted, intersex and gender diverse young people.
Change is coming.
It’s coming to schools. It’s coming to classrooms. It’s coming to school yards. And with your help, it will have a lasting effect on our community.
As the first national coalition dedicated to making schools safer and more inclusive for same sex attracted, intersex and gender diverse young people, we are creating change to ensure that every student and every teacher in every school has access to a safe and inclusive learning environment.
Schools can join the coalition in Victoria, New South Wales and South Australia today. We will be launching the program in the remaining states and territories by 2015.
Joining Safe Schools Coalition Australia is free – but it’s a statement, a commitment. By joining us, you are committing to building a school that is free from homophobic and transphobic bullying, that’s safe and inclusive for all students and staff. And in exchange, we’ll provide professional development for staff, resources and advice and support for schools to help build connective and supportive spaces for students now and in the future.
Safe Schools Coalition Australia builds on the highly successful Safe Schools Coalition Victoria model (funded by the Victorian Government) at Gay and Lesbian Health Victoria, a program that has already worked with thousands of school staff and students to challenge homophobia and transphobia and positively support gender diversity and sexual diversity.
Now, nationally convened by FYA and federally funded by the Australian Government Department of Education, the coalition is going Australia-wide.
