Coaching Services - Los Angeles LGBT Center

“[I wanted to participate in RISE because] I need people that are really supportive, you know, they look past my sexuality, they look at, you know who I am individually, and that's what I wanted. I wanted somebody who looks, you know, past, what my sexuality is, or you know, anything else with me. They just see who I really am.”

RISE’s coaching program provides opportunities for private and public agency representatives to sustain and build their LGBTQ-related knowledge and skills.

These representatives participate in monthly two-hour meetings that involve learning labs, field scenarios, group work, and experiential training. Through these meetings participants increase their comfort coaching on LGBTQ-related topics, fielding difficult questions, assessing individual and organizational needs, and responding to anti-LGBTQ bias. Potential coaching program members must have previously attended a RISE training. For more information, contact [email protected].

RISE Coaching: Partner Agency Testimonials

“The RISE Coaching Network changed how I supported clients. I asked first, to see how they wanted me to support them. It has also changed my awareness of how uncomfortable my co-workers are and how much support they really need.”

“Learning how to answer awkward questions with confidence, and without judgment, has made all the difference. Being able to meet together with others is a great way to garner confidence, support, and resources for supporting the LGBTQ community, particularly our youth.”

“The RISE Coaching Network has made me aware of my own ‘stuff’ and I can now filter those things out to make sure I am always affirming and supportive.”
