- increase your understanding of and competence with sexual and gender minority youth;
- articulate the potential consequences of social and emotional isolation on sexual and gender minority youth;
- increase your understanding of the differences between sexual orientation, sex and gender;
- increase your competency in using culturally competent terminology; and
