Making Relationship Programs More Inclusive For LGBTQ+ Youth:
Findings From the FRAMING Research Project

The number of young people in the United States who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, or questioning (LGBTQ+) has increased substantially in recent years. Although the topics addressed in healthy marriage and relationship education (HMRE) programs tend to be applicable to young people of any gender who are interested in both heterosexual and non-heterosexual relationships, few programs explicitly address these topics from the LGBTQ+ perspective.

Join us as we discuss common challenges HMRE programs face related to serving LGBTQ+ youth and promising strategies for making HMRE programs more inclusive for this population.


Mind Matters Shine in Arizona!

Dibble client, Arizona Youth Partnership (AZYP), is using Mind Matters in two unique prevention settings.

With funding from Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (healthcare), AZYP is using Mind Matters with school-aged youth at risk for substance use or misuse. AZYP is using their own staff to reach 8th grade students in health classes across the state.

With funding from the Arizona Title II Formula Grant (juvenile justice), AZYP is using Mind Matters with youth in mandatory probation classes and other settings as a primary and secondary prevention strategy for justice system involvement.

Thank you, AZYP, for the impact you are making on youth in Arizona!

(Ed. Note: Our June webinar will feature AZYP focusing on their Title II project.)

Significant Improvements to Federal Grants Rules zfor Charitable Nonprofits
