DO YOU WANT TO CHANNEL YOUR LGBTQ RIGHTS ACTIVISM?

DO YOU WANT TO MAKE CHANGE IN YOUR SCHOOL & COMMUNITY TO BE MORE ACCEPTING OF LGBTQ+ YOUTH?

DO YOU FEEL PASSIONATE ABOUT LGBTQ+ ACTIVISM BUT DON'T KNOW HOW TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE?

JOIN OUR SHINE STUDENT LEADERSHIP TEAM!

Our SHINE team is a group of student leaders working to create safe schools and communities. The team members will meet regularly throughout the year to develop skills, form a network of other youth leaders, and organize programs in the community that promote respect for LGBTQ+ students.

 

SHINE members must be committed to being inclusive and responsible, and must follow through on organizing responsibilities for the team. Each member must be open to learning, willing to examine their own privileges, and dedicated to developing leadership/activism skills.

 

GLYS' SHINE Team will have an important part in the planning of GLYS' annual events such as; the GSA Conferences, Pride Month Events, and the Diversity Prom. The goal of GLYS' GLSEN SHINE Team is to encourage LGBTQ+ youth and their allies to take leadership in their activism and community.
