In the spirit of unity, empowerment, and leadership Dare2Care, in collaboration with Ohio’s citizens, schools, communities, and corporations, endeavors to produce events (i.e. fundraising and workshops) that are inclusive, arousing, educational, and courageous. Our events will continue to highlight Cleveland’s best, brightest, underserved, and infrequently heard from youth. It is our aim to give voice to tomorrow’s leaders, to seek out and share the wisdom of our current leaders, and to break through barriers while building bridges. Movement is change and we assure you that you will be moved.

Fundraising events to provide funding for our school workshops:  Dare2Care has developed a strong reputation since its inception in 2011, for creative and inspiring fund raising events. We are committed to spending every dollar raised on the development and implementation of our school-based workshops designed to eliminate LGBTQ targeted bullying in our schools.

Free Workshops to explore how sex, gender and diverse Identities impact the culture of bullying:  Dare2Care is working toward filling the gap between what is often believed about sex, gender, and diverse identities and what we know to be true about sex, gender, and diverse identities, based on accurate and well researched information.  Bi-annual workshops are presented free to the Greater Cleveland School  communities. We are currently developing a new student and faculty curriculum – to be launched in March 2017 which will also include a ‘train the trainers‘ component for youth/peer facilitators.

This will be an opportunity to explore and challenge some of your own assumptions about identity and how it influences bullying  in a creative, educational and supportive environment.


A simultaneous workshop will be conducted separately for faculty
