Adults will attend intense training seminars on supporting teens from diverse backgrounds, and learn effective tools to apply in their own work with teens experiencing abuse. Service providers, community members, parents, guardians, and teachers are encouraged to attend.

The conference is a half-day for adults on March 30th, 2007, and a full-day for teens on March 31st, 2007. The conference will be held at the Equality Center at the Human Rights Campaign Building at 1640 Rhode Island Avenue, North West, Washington, DC.
