Gender is at the very core of our being and relationships—the starting point of who we are, who we think we are, and who we and others think we should be. The Gender Continuum course deconstructs the concept of gender as binary and offers new views that expand our ability to think about gender. Information and education about transgender youth is the most urgent and needed request today from schools, parents, and other organizations. Upon taking this course, you will be equipped with the tools you need to to create action plans for youth and families impacted by these topics at the interpersonal and/or institutional levels of your organization.
Further, you will leave this course with an understanding of the major social movements of the last century that have rapidly defined expectations for femininity and masculinity in our society, able to address fears and misconceptions that lead to adverse outcomes for youth and adults impacted by gender and orientation, and more. Perhaps the most direct impact you can make after taking the gender continuum course is this: you can identify actions to create caring environments that accommodate all young peoples’ experience around gender and orientation. Go here for a full list of learning objectives for the Gender Continuum course.

- Youth and families struggling to navigate concerns around gender or gender transitioning
