Safe Space: Peer Education Facilitator

Safe Space: Peer Education (SSPE) is a student version of Georgia Tech's Safe Space program. The goals, messages, and content are the same in both programs, but SSPE will have more of a student focus, equipping students with the knowledge and skills to support a peer who comes out to them and to effectively practice allyship to LGBTQIA communities.

What does being a facilitator involve?

As a facilitator, you will undergo training to equip you with the skills and knowledge to lead SSPE sessions for other students. Training consists of a 2-hour Train the Trainer session where you will go through the program as participants. This is mandatory even if you've completed the training before. The date for this Train the Trainer session is TBD. Dinner will be provided. 

Once you have completed training, you will be eligible to facilitate a session with an experienced facilitator. Everyone on the team is expected to facilitate 1-2 sessions per semester. Typically, all sessions are in the evening from 5-9pm with very occasional weekend trainings for students (i.e., housing staff, FASET leaders, etc.)

Who can apply to be a facilitator?

All applicants must meet the following criteria:

  • Be a current undergraduate or graduate student at Georgia Tech
  • Be able to attend mandatory training 
  • Able to commit to facilitating for at least one year, preferably more
  • Be reliable and committed to the program; all training is mandatory, and you must arrive at your scheduled sessions fully prepared and on time
  • Be knowledgeable about LGBTQIA issues and communities
  • Be a confident, clear, and articulate speaker/presenter

Applications are now closed.
