Gender and Sexualities Alliance Leadership Hub welcomes high school and middle school youth leaders and members who are involved with Gay-Straight Alliances at school or who are interested in establishing a club. The purpose of this group is to create an affirming space for Gay-Straight Alliances youth leaders to meet and network with one another. Our goal is to continue expanding and providing a monthly space for students to meet and become engaged at the community level. This is a perfect opportunity for youth to learn how to learn and participate with our youth programs.
Youth Empowered to Act (YETA) is a coalition of LGBTQQ and allied youth young leaders working to create safer, supportive and intersectional* spaces to engage in advocacy and social justice. Every year, this youth group organizes and leads Orange County’s only LGBTQQ youth conference, the OC LGBTQQ Youth Convening. Community events include but are not limited to: speaking at school board meetings, presenting at local youth conferences, hosting a leadership summer program, drag show fundraiser, and attend the national Creating Change Conference. This is a free group with no membership fees. We meet Tuesdays 5:30-7:30pm at The Center on 4th (Second Floor)
