Youth Conferences

Attention High School Students:   


GLSEN Northeast Ohio with the help of our working partners at the LGBT Community Center of Greater Cleveland and Teen Pride Network will host Youth Conferences on Saturday, November 7 at the LGBT Community Center in Cleveland and the UU Church of Akron in Fairlawn on Saturday, November 21, 2015 from 9:00 – 4:00.  We are so happy to hold two Youth Conferences this fall in order to reach more high school students in the Northeast Ohio region.  


This year’s conference theme is “Just Be Who You Want to Be,” and we will celebrate the recent gains in LGBTQ rights in Ohio, nationally, and in today’s schools.  Our programming will focus on issues that interest LGBTQ students and their supportive allies.  There will be facilitated dialogues and speakers throughout the day.  It is our hope that there are representatives from area Gay-Straight Alliances (although you do not have to be in a GSA to attend) so that students leave motivated to continue to learn and make change in their communities. 


Lunch and snacks are provided and there is no cost to register.  Speaking of lunch, we will have an Open Mic during lunch - so students should come ready to share poetry, sing, play an instrument, or share their thoughts.
