Before filling out this application we suggest you visit - www.positivesexed.com/HumSexComm - to learn more about the workshop. There you will find details about the Information Sessions coming up in August and the cost of the workshop. We strongly encourage you to attend one of the Information Sessions.
Please give yourself time to fill out the application, it can take up to an hour to fill out. A suggestion is to look through the application first and write your answers in a separate document then cut and paste.
-------The application is composed of both multiple choice questions and narrative questions. The reason we have an application is to ensure that participants will respect and create a safe space inside of the workshop and to help us build a workshop group with a diversity of viewpoints, experiences, and backgrounds. As facilitators, we also want to begin to get an idea of your interests, needs, and desires, which will help us build and structure meetings.
We want to emphasize that the workshop application is the only way we get a sense of why you want to take HumSexComm; if there's something you want us to know about your interest in the workshop, please include it in your application!
We also want to make sure you understand that workshop participants meet with their specific section for 12 weeks. Participants are expected to be present for all weekly meetings; this is important for creating a safe and stable space, as well as for building community. We recognize that you have other commitments outside of the workshop; however, if you already know that you'll be missing more than 2 workshop meetings, we encourage you to apply to a future workshop.
HumSexComm starts on September 4, 2019 and meets every Wednesday through November 20, 2019 from 6pm to 8:30pm.
-------Online applications are due by noon on Friday, August 23, 2019.
We will be making participant decisions and notifications within in five days of the application deadline on August 23rd. If you are not chosen, please do not take it personally and feel free to apply again next year.
In the event that you are chosen as a participant and are unable to participate, please let us know as soon as possible so we can give your space to someone else.
Please do not hesitate to contact us - email@example.com - if you have any questions at all about the application, the workshop in general, or if you need any accommodations in order to make this application accessible for you.
