LGBT+ Youth Leadership Team

For 13-25 year-olds interested in becoming LGBT+ youth leaders

For the second year in a row, we will be offering a competitive leadership program for LGBTQ+ and LGBTQ-adjacent youth ages 13-25. In this program, they will build relationships with LGBTQ+ leaders in the community, develop their own leadership potential and learn about the following: mental health, physical wellness, HIV/STI prevention, peer-to-peer support, social justice, political advocacy, and education. Participants will develop a workshop to teach about LGBTQ topics and promote acceptance and inclusion to their peers, and will be able to join the Speakers' Bureau after graduation if they desire. Youth receive a stipend for participation in this program and it is our hope that they use it as a catalyst for continuing their education and/or jump-starting their career.

**Applications for the 2020 team have closed as of 3/1/2020.
