Julisa and Quintin will discuss several training programs that serve as a foundation of skill building for QTPOC to become leaders and employable in community and leadership roles. They will also discuss the how these skills can work to move past intersectionality of QTPOC. Some employment opportunities and training programs they will discuss include Certified Peer Support Specialists, Community Health Workers, Recovery Coaches, Building Leaders of Color (NMAC), and the Southeastern Michigan HIV/AIDS Council (SEMHAC) Project LEAP (Learning, Empowerment, Advocacy, Participate). This workshop will help all students and other attendees learn valuable leadership skills and become advocates for themselves in their personal and professional lives. Students will also learn about barriers to employment for QTPOC and recommended resources for that community.
