Ally Training Curriculum & Workshops

The Safe Zone training is a 120-150 minute program that is tailored to meet the needs of participants and also offers a core set of values and information. We organized the training into modules that the facilitators can use to address the group with. If you have specific feedback about any training session or module, contact your facilitator or e-mail us at safezone@wou.edu.

The WOU Safe Zone Committee can come to your organization and provide Safe Zone Ally training! We want more information from you so that we can tailor the program to meet your needs. Fill out our online intake form and the Safe Zone Committee will work with planning an event for you!
