The Safe Space Kit provides a program for action that school staff can take to create a positive learning environment for every student.
Each kit contains:
- 42-page Guide to Being an Ally to LGBT Students that gives concrete strategies for supporting LGBT students, including how to educate about anti-LGBT bias and teaching respect for all people.
- 10 Safe Space Stickers
- 2 Posters
The kit also shows how to assess the school's climate, policies and practices, and outlines ways to advocate for change inside the school.
The Safe Space Kit starts with a sticker. Placing a Safe Space sticker on an office door or window is a simple but highly visible first step that shows an adult's unwavering support for a student's safety. There is also a poster that can be displayed throughout the school or on an office door to show support to LGBT students and let students know where their allies are should events of bullying occur.
GLSEN strives to ensure that every school in America is safe for all students, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression. We want a Safe Space Kit to be used in every middle and high school across America to provide all students a safe place to learn.
