San Diego Pride, in partnership with the San Diego Unified School District, the San Diego County Office of Education, and The School for Entrepreneurship and Technology, is proud to host the annual Pride Youth Leadership Academy (YLA). YLA was created to bring LGBTQ+ youth together from across the region to engage, educate, and inspire our next generation of leaders. Youth who attend YLA come away with the practical skill and committed passion to become agents of change within their own schools and communities. YLA is a fun, inclusive, and intense academy that includes historic context, LGBTQ resource education, organizing skills, panel discussions, and team-building activities that inform and motivate participants to be successful in all they do. YLA has three academy tracks available; first time YLA attendees, returning YLA attendees, and Parent/Caregiver/Educator. YLA is free and open to junior-high and high-school-aged youth.

The youth of today are the future of tomorrow. YLA is just one of a slate of youth programs run by San Diego Pride to ensure that LGBTQ youth and allies have the resources to be effective in installing change and progress in their communities and throughout their lives.

COVID-19 INFORMATION & VACCINATION REQUIREMENT

San Diego Pride is excited to provide a variety of options for people to come together in ways that feel comfortable, healthy, and safe. We ask each individual to review the guidelines and setting for this event in order to assess their own comfortability with attendance.

San Diego Pride is requiring proof of full vaccination at the door for this event. You will be asked to show your Vaccination Card along with identification before entering the building. “Full Vaccination” requires at least 2 weeks to have passed since your final vaccination shot (or sole vaccination shot for Johnson & Johnson.)

Out of respect for body autonomy and an understanding of the reasons folks may not be vaccinated, San Diego Pride will also accept a Negative COVID-19 test result within 72 hours prior to the event. Masks will be required regardless of vaccination status while indoors. Disposable masks will be available at the door.

We encourage everyone to sign up for CA Notify as an added layer of protection for themselves and the community to receive alerts when you have been in close contact with someone who tests positive for COVID-19.
