Secular Safe Zone - Facilitator Program

A Secular Safe Zone Facilitator is an Ally who has received specialized training to create a Secular Safe Zone program at their institution. Facilitators train Allies and provide them with guidance, training, access to resources, and supervision. Specifically, a Facilitator is responsible for:

  • Implementing and overseeing the Secular Safe Zone program at their institution
  • Serving as the public face of the program at their institution
  • Training and Supporting Allies
  • Serving as an Ally

Facilitators also communicate with the national Secular Safe Zone program and the Coordinator to improve training, gather data, and stay up-to-date on important issues and news.

If you are interested in becoming a Secular Safe Zone Facilitator or setting up a program at your institution, please contact our Coordinator at
