2018-2019 Youth Council in Central Valley
The 2018-2019 Youth Council in Central Valley

Youth Council is a year-long leadership program that provides trans and queer youth of color and allies with tools to make a positive change in their schools and communities. Members receive training in organizing and advocacy, learn LGBTQ+ history, and receive support to meet their goals and make an impact! Middle and high school students are encouraged to apply below.

Registration for the event National Youth Council was closed on October 31, 2019 00:00.

As a member you will:

  • Learn how to plan and lead campaigns that center racial and gender justice
  • Become an ambassador of GSA Network
  • Have a chance to tell your story and use your voice to stand up for yourself and others in your community
  • Have fun exploring your identities
  • Make lifelong friendships (or as we call it siblinghood)


  • You do not have to be in your GSA’s leadership to apply.
