Training Institute

Triangle Community Center’s (TCC) LGBTQ Training Institute brings community education and professional development through training, workshops, agencies, companies, and groups across Connecticut to strengthen LGBTQ cultural competency with the goal of increasing LGBTQ individuals’ access to inclusive and affirming services.


Triangle Community Center’s (TCC) training program includes community education and professional development surrounding LGBTQ cultural competency. Training is facilitated by TCC’s Community Educator for businesses, social and public service agencies, institutions, and schools.

Services provided by TCC Training Institute are offered at a fee.

• For most effective training, it is recommended that training classes are kept to groups of under 25 individuals.

• Organizations requiring training for audiences larger than 25 are encouraged to schedule multiple sessions.

• Each additional group training will be provided at a discounted fee (if provided on the same day).

• For organizations wishing to train 100+ individuals, we may provide custom proposals.

TCC’s training objectives and learning goals include understanding of the following:

• Language and definition of terms associated with the LGBTQ community.

• Definitions of sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.

• Rethinking social norms and expectations in regard to sexual orientation, gender identity, and expression.

• How to be a good ally to the LGBTQ community in your organization through inclusive and non-binary language and attitudes.

• We are also happy to build customized curriculum and training workshops with content particular to your organization’s needs. Our Community Educator can design and facilitate a tailored curriculum to meet your learning goals for an additional fee.
