All of Morningside Center's school-based programs foster respect for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning students. By teaching students social and emotional skills, including diversity awareness and skills to counter bullying, we help schools create a safe, caring climate for LGBTQ students, and all students.

In addition, Morningside Center collaborates with the Department of Education and five other nonprofits to provide Respect for All workshops for staff of schools throughout New York City. These two-day awareness and skill-building workshops specifically address bullying, especially of lesbian and gay young people.
