The National 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 assist in planning components of the National Gathering (an annual conference for the National Association of GSA Networks) and working with the National TRUTH Council on GSA Day for Racial Justice (an annual day of action in February). Youth council members will work to support one another, and the National staff of GSA Network will help the council.
National Youth Council members will be based in states with member organizations of the National Association of GSA Networks. The National Youth Council will consist of 8 members 9th-12th grade from across the country and serve for nine months. High school students and recent high school graduates are encouraged to apply below.
