“Findlay High School’s Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) is a student-led club that supports LGBTQI identified students and their allies by working towards building an accepting community regardless of identity or orientation through education, support, social action and advocacy. The SEL grant will be targeted to areas of GSA curriculum including the development of student skills such as reflection, coping, communication and assertiveness. Additionally, grant funds will help provide a staff safe-space training which will create and identify allies, and also provide a general level of education and understanding that promotes safer classroom environments and inclusion for LGBTQI students.”
