Greek Ally Program

Thumbnail Icon for Greek Ally

In collaboration with the Office of Multicultural Student Affairs the Greek Ally Program (GAP) is designed to educate chapters about the LGBTQIA+ community and how to be an ally and support members who may identify as such. This three tiered FSL-specific Safe Zone training program begins with individual chapter members learning about topics such as terminology, privilege and allyship and finishes with a certification that allows participants to conduct FSL specific Safe Zone training for chapters who request it.

 

Member Training 

Level I - This training provides a basic foundation of knowledge about the LGBTQIA+ community with an emphasis on terminology and developing awareness of the broad spectrum of identity. This training is two hours. Participants will receive a Greek Ally pin upon completion.  

Level I Safe Zone Training for FSL Members

Level II - This training provides a more in-depth look into intersectionality, privilege and allyship. Level II provides strategies for participants who want to support their LGBTQIA+ chapter members, helpful tips for if and/or when a chapter member comes out to you and how to be an inclusive and accepting chapter for LGBTQIA+ non-Greeks who are interested in pursuing membership. This training is two hours and is only available to those who have completed Level I. Participants will receive a Greek Ally t-shirt upon completion.

Level II Safe Zone Training for FSL Members

Level III - This training provides the necessary tools to conduct chapter trainings. Participants will receive a training manual and will learn how to facilitate Safe Zone trainings in large group settings. This training is two hours and is only available to those who have completed Levels I and II. Participants will receive a Greek Ally certification upon completion.
