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.

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.
  • Required meetings happen once a month (generally on a Saturday) in our regional offices. If you are not near one of those offices, there will be an online option for you to participate!
  • We offer transportation reimbursements for members needing financial assistance
  • Lunch and snacks are provided at all meetings for all members
