Meet GSA Network’s Rock Star Youth Leaders!


Each year, GSA Network works with a core group of committed GSA activists and leaders who help lead our programs and shape how we can best meet the needs of LGBTQ and allied youth.  These leadership groups include our regional Youth Councils in Northern and Southern California and our Statewide Advocacy Council.
