Developing Youth Leadership

Building strong youth leadership is core to creating school communities where all LGBTQ youth and students thrive.  Youth develop their leadership through:

Our programming includes public health education and HIV prevention, student leadership development, LGBTQ competency, anti-bullying/anti-violence education, and understanding and learning to challenge all discrimination.

Over 500 students are affected directly and over 5,000 students statewide are affected by their peers through the training of student leaders who go back to their schools and work to create a safer school environment.  Youth leaders from across the state are directly involved in planning and implementing many of our leadership programs.
