Each training and presentation includes a brief overview of the programs and services available through the Pride Center of the Capital Region. Additionally, our 15-30 minute Pride Center Information Presentations are also available at no cost for agencies, businesses, and community groups seeking to learn more about the many programs and services we offer.
Our training requires two hours minimum to build a baseline of knowledge. The Pride Center often receives feedback from audience members expressing the need for more time. When scheduling a training or presentation, we recommend considering provided more than the required minimum to allow for the most significant impact.
Once scheduled, each training and presentation is individualized by our professional staff trainers to meet the client’s unique needs. Customized training and presentations not found below are also available by request.
