HEARRT: Health Education and Risk Reduction Team Workshop

6:00-7:00: Welcoming Meeting

This is a great meeting if you’re new to BAGLY.  We give you an orientation to BAGLY and play “getting to know you” games.

7:00-9:00: HEARRT: Health Education and Risk Reduction Team Workshop

Join BAGLY's H.E.A.R.T.T. team for a HEARRT workshop and learn how you and others in your community can help prevent the spread of HIV and STIs! 

The Health Education And Risk Reduction Team (HEARRT), an original structural intervention, is BAGLY’s youth-led health promotion program. Small groups of thoughtful, committed LGBTQ young people (we call them the HEARRTeam) work to change negative health outcomes in their community. BAGLY’s HEARRT Program is replicated across the state through the GLBT Youth Group Network of Massachusetts. Check out an “AGLY” near you to connect with their HEARRTeams and for prevention, screening, and referral services for LGBTQ youth across Massachusetts.

The HEARRTeam is available every Wednesday and at every BAGLY program event to distribute lots of safer sex materials with information on how to use them, provide referrals, and to answer any questions youth may have about all kinds of health related issues. They’re also really nice and love to talk about health so be sure to say hi when you see them!

Want BAGLY’s HEARRTeam to work their outreach magic at your school/agency? Fees start at $50 depending upon size of organization and length of engagement. All fees support BAGLY’s programming and services for LGBTQ youth. Contact us to find out more.

Also, on the first Wednesday of every month, the HEARRTeam offers fabulous health promotion workshops for LGBTQ youth at BAGLY’s Boston-based program space. Check out our calendar for upcoming topics.

Want a HEARRT workshop at your school/agency? Training and technical assistance fees start at $150 per hour depending upon size of organization and training content. All fees support BAGLY’s programming and services for LGBTQ youth. Contact  us to find out more.

Queer Activist College

In 2004, BAGLY established the Queer Activist College (QuAC) program in order to support the development of new and emerging movement leadership among LGBTQ youth in Greater Boston.

QuAC offers amazing workshops on the 3rd Wednesday of every month at our Boston-based program space. Workshops focus on building the social, racial, economic, and environmental justice, sexual freedom (and lots more!) skills of LGBTQ youth – laying the foundation for BAGLY’s youth-led advocacy work.  All skills-based classes focus on essential advocacy, direct action, and organizing tools/skills and often feature panels and invited guests. Visit our calendar to view upcoming QuAC classes!

Let’s not forget about our QuAC Study Abroad project!! Each year, BAGLY provides several opportunities for members to deepen their skills and connect with a broader, national LGBTQ movement. Contact us to find out more about our annual pilgrimage to the Creating Change Conference. Other Study Abroad opportunities may include: True Colors ConferencePhiladelphia Trans-Health ConferenceInternational AIDS Conference, and more!
