GSA Network offers GSA Leadership Trainings and Summits for youth activists throughout California. We are also available to visit your school if your Gay-Straight Alliance club needs specialized training on specific topics.
GSA Leadership Trainings and Summits bring together GSA activists from many different schools, allowing them to network and build the GSA movement in their region. High school students trained by GSA Network lead the workshops. Summits are open to middle and high school students, advisors, and teachers.
Topics are constantly evolving to address many different issues affecting LGBT students and their communities. Topics include:
How to run GSA meetings
Outreach, membership building, coalitions, and diversity
Understanding gender identity/expression and sexual orientation
Understanding laws that protect LGBTQ youth in schools
Taking action against slurs, harassment, and discrimination in schools
