RISE provides in-house and off-site coaching to trained professionals seeking to enhance their practice behaviors and knowledge base.

Through these spaces, participants increase their comfort coaching at their respective agency on LGBTQ+-related topics, fielding difficult questions, assessing individual and organizational needs, and responding to anti-LGBTQ+ bias. Potential in-house coaching network program members must have previously attended a RISE training.
