Join Youth Council

Join Youth Council and become one of the next great youth leaders in the GSA movement!!

Have you ever wanted a space where you…

  • Can talk about issues relating to your Gay-Straight Alliance Club?
  • Get immediate access to a Youth Organizer to ask questions about your GSA?
  • Work with 20-25 LGBTQ and straight ally students to organize leadership conferences and summits throughout California?
  • Celebrate with a graduation ceremony that focuses on appreciating all the hard work that you do in your GSA and for your community?

These amazing opportunities are possible by joining your regional Youth Council!

GSA Network’s NorCal, Central Valley and SoCal Youth Councils are open to anyone who is currently involved (or wants to be involved) with their GSA. The requirements are simple: be involved in your GSA, be committed to organizing a campaign on your campus, and attend monthly meetings.

Youth Council focuses on three very important things: activism, leadership, and fun!

We know that social time and building leadership skills are both important aspects of social justice activism! We also focus on building the confidence of GSA youth leaders because we know they are the future of the LGBTQ movement!
