JQ International brings the most up-to-date and refined LGBTQ Inclusion Consulting and Safe School Training programs to the greater Los Angeles area.
As every community seeks to better understand and include the needs of its Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning (LGBTQ) members, JQ provides individualized consulting, training, and programs kits to assist in these efforts. Our goal is to ensure a safe and integrated space for LGBTQ Jews in all Jewish communities and beyond.
JQ Inclusion Consulting and Safe School Training programs provide intensive peer support to a cohort of Jewish educators, clergy, and lay leaders across a wide variety of organizations. JQ also provides facilitator training and technical support networks. For our Safe School Training programs, our resources form a supportive curriculum guide appropriate for grades 7-12 and the educators that serve them.
Our LGBTQ Inclusion Consulting and Safe School Training programs utilize three main strategies:
- Understanding LGBTQ identities and their unique needs;
- Creating environments that promote healthy and positive participation;
- Building proactive educational opportunities within heteronormative organizational cultures.
Our LGBTQ Inclusion Consulting and Safe School Training programs are custom-tailored for the needs of each institution to suit its unique needs. JQ presents these strategies in ways that are specifically supportive of Jewish traditions and mindful of the spiritual and cultural points of view of the organizations we are consulting.
