The Safe Zone Resource Center’s Ally Training Ambassadors are a group of elite professionals who provide professional development and educational outreach training on LGBTQIA+ related topics. Along with the SZRC staff, they help facilitate, assess, and coordinate the Ally Training Program at UA.

For those interested in becoming an Ally Training Ambassador, we are currently accepting applications from Faculty, Staff, and Graduate Assistants at UA. Applicants who are chosen participate in an asynchronous online and one online training session.  They commit to facilitating at least three training/info sessions each semester. In order to be selected as an Ally Training Ambassador, applicants must:

1) Complete the ambassador application.

2) Be prepared to make a time commitment to both their own professional development as Training Ambassadors and to facilitate at least three sessions each semester (scheduled based on your unique availability).

*While it is not required, the SZRC recommends that interested applicants check with their supervisor to ensure that they will be able to keep their promised time commitment.

3) Complete the Ally Training Ambassador online course and be available for one in-person training meeting.

*The online course is a cohort based, asynchronous class designed to prepare new trainers to effectively facilitate, assess, and revise the Ally Training Program, as well as, develop a supportive culture of growth and excellence among one another.

If you’d like to apply to the program, begin by filling out the application below.

If you have further questions, please feel free to reach out by emailing us at safezone@ua.edu.
