Help lead our Movement!

The Iowa Pride Network Leadership Team and Youth Council is a diverse group of youth leaders from college and high schools all over Iowa. As a member of the Leadership Team and Youth Council you will learn skills to become a stronger activist and work towards creating a safer climate at your school for LGBTQ youth and straight allies. You will get support around creating a campaign, event planning or starting a GSA club on your campus. In addition, members are responsible for giving input and helping guide the programs of the Iowa Pride Network. Members will represent the needs of college GSAs and youth activists from their campus as well as plan events and lead peer to peer workshops, leadership trainings, conferences and other organizing projects. 

In addition you'll have opportunity to:
o        Help plan and run youth led conferences or present workshops at local and national conferences
o        Plan and participate in Iowa Pride Network social activities
o        Apply to become a peer-to-peer youth trainer
