We are currently accepting student and staff applications for our annual GSA Student Leadership Summit, to be held this year November 9-11. The Summit is free, and transportation, accommodations and meals will be provided. Students will participate in workshops, create action plans for the upcoming year, and make connections with other students from across the state, with the goal of developing student leadership and establishing a statewide network of regional student GSA representatives. We are also seeking youth and adult volunteer staff to help facilitate the Summit and coordinate follow-up activities. Please view the applications below for more information!
