This month, Community-Based Research Centre (CBRC) is excited to launch its newest community health leadership program: Pivot.
Pivot is a four-day health leadership program for gay, bisexual, queer, and other men who have sex with men (cis and trans), and Two-Spirit people (GBTQ2S+) interested in becoming health advocates for their local communities. The purpose of Pivot is to support local GBTQ2S+ community members by building skills and capacity in health literacy, and to facilitate community-led initiatives that improve the health and wellbeing of local communities.
Over two weekends, participants complete a series of interactive workshops with community leaders to develop a critical understanding of GBTQ2S+ health and learn practical strategies for health promotion including digital advocacy, policy advocacy, and media relations. Upon completion of core training, Pivot provides participants with opportunities to apply their knowledge and skills by developing their own community health advocacy projects in partnership with local organizations in their cities/regions.
Pivot is a pilot program developed by CBRC in collaboration with local organizations across Canada, including Calgary Sexual Health Centre, Edmonton Men's Health Collective (EMHC), OUTSaskatoon, and Rainbow Resource Centre (Winnipeg).
