Convening young people from all over the state, the Alliance creates a forum for students to inform, participate in and lead the Illinois LGBTQ safe schools movement. From Youth Leadership Summits, to Day of Silence/Night of Noise activities, to Gay-Straight Alliance networks—young people are working together to ensure the safety of LGBTQ youth and their allies in Illinois schools and communities please contact our Youth Engagement Coordinator, Nat Duran firstname.lastname@example.org.
Registration is now open for the Alliance's 2016 Youth Leadership Action Camp!
For the last three years the Illinois safe Schools Alliance has hosted a 4-day sleepaway Youth Leadership Action Camp for young people throughout the state of Illinois to come together in order to discuss those issues most pertinent to them and learn from one another how best to advocate for change within their school and home communities.
All young people (in, or of age to be in, a middle school or high school) in Illinois who areinterested in making schools safer for students throughout the state are encouraged to applyfor Action Camp.
If you are a GSA advisor/sponsor or an adult ally in other LGBTQ youth spaces (such as a community center) and would like to be added to the Alliance's listserv to learn about events and resources, please take a moment to register your school organization or youth group. If you have any questions about this, please contact our Youth Engagement Coordinator, Nat Duran email@example.com.
