For support of their New Jersey Training Institute modeled after the HMI National Center for Advocacy and Capacity Building (at HMI’s NYC office) to provide training designed to promote evidenced-based, best practices to agencies who serve LGBTQ youth. Because each agency has its own unique training needs, HMI will work with each to select the trainings that are best suited for their team. These training sessions are intended to build the skills and competencies of other service providers regarding best practices for working with and developing targeted programming for LGBTQ youth in a way that is affirming, respectful and sensitive to their needs. Through a comprehensive package of direct services and referrals, HMI fosters healthy youth development with pioneering programs that establish best practices that may be replicated by other youth-serving organizations.
