Youth Leadership Academy
San Diego Pride is proud to host the annual Pride Youth Leadership Academy. 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.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, 2020’s Youth Leadership Academy will be held virtually on Zoom over two days.
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.
This program is free and open to junior-high and high-school-aged youth. You can help fund this program and our other youth programs by donating here.
