REACHING HIGHER: A Curriculum for Foster/Adoptive Parents and Kinship Caregivers Caring for LGBTQ Youth Reaching Higher was developed by the National Center for Child Welfare Excellence in an effort to reach an improved level of service delivery for LGBTQ youth and their families. The curriculum was developed to increase the competence of any family providing out of home care for youth—foster/adoptive families, kinship care families, guardianship families, or adoptive families. The curriculum is meant to enhance the skills of those providing direct care for LGBTQ youth. The curriculum with some adaptation may also be helpful for those providing care in group homes and residential care facilities.  
Recommendations for LGBTQQ Mentoring The National Mentoring Partnership The LGBTQ supplement to Elements of Effective Practice for Mentoring responds to a longstanding call to extend the reach and quality of mentoring relationships to one of our nation’s most underserved, marginalized, and vulnerable populations — youth who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (LGBTQQ). Part of a shared commitment by Big Brothers Big Sisters of America and MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership to improve mentoring services to all children and youth across the country, the supplement offers step-by-step operations guidance to develop safer, more affirming, and responsive mentoring relationships for LGBTQ youth.

Recruiting, Training, and Retaining LGBTQ-Proficient Clinical Providers: A Workforce Development Toolkit National LGBTQIA+ Health Education Center As lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) people increasingly access care at health centers, the clinical workforce needs to be prepared to meet the unique health needs of LGBTQ patients. Finding LGBTQ-proficient providers, however, can present a challenge, especially outside major metropolitan areas.   May 2019
Reducing System Crossover for Black LGBTQ+ Girls & Nonbinary Youth Madeline Stern This publication from the Center for Juvenile Justice Reform highlights the critical need to ensure that systems fully support Black LGBTQ+ girls and nonbinary youth--a population that is at higher risk for crossover (i.e., becoming dually-involved in both the juvenile justice and child welfare systems) than their non-Black, non-LGBTQ+ peers. The white paper also provides recommendations to mitigate this disparity and improve the experiences of and outcomes for this population of young people.
