Our Workshop at a Glance
The ShoutOut workshop is an interactive, dynamic and informative hour long session where the facilitators explore LGBTQ+ terminology, scenarios where students can act as good allies, and ways in which to create a welcoming environment for LGBTQ+ students.
We also share our own stories, of coming out, or becoming allies ourselves, and explain how some language and behaviour during our time in school could be hurtful, and when it was supportive.
Fill out the form opposite to request a workshop and we will be in touch as soon as possible.
Every year we try our very best to build on the previous year's experience and improve our performance. With this in mind, we've set out the following guidelines for those booking workshops.
- Our suggested group size is 20. That said, we'll try our best to accommodate all groups big and small.
- For bookings outside of Dublin, Galway, Limerick and Cork, we suggest a a starting time after 11.30 am. This is to allow volunteers time to make their way to your local area.
- We require at least two weeks' notice of all bookings and one week notice of any changes to bookings.
Each class group has a different dynamic. If your class has any special requirements or particular issues, please let us know and we'll try our very best to accommodate them.
Another thing to consider at this stage is whether you wish to join the students in taking part in the workshop or merely monitor the workshop. Every group is different, some groups are shy in front of their teachers and others will be more open and involved with a familiar face actively engaging in the workshop. Let us know what way you think would work best for your group.
ShoutOut is completely volunteer run and self financing. Our work wouldn't be possible without the support of schools. If your school is in a position to make a small donation after receiving a workshop then please do so by clicking the button below or by talking to you ShoutOut facilitator on the day . If not, don't worry, donations are in no way a pre-requisite to receiving a workshop.
