Youth Leadership Academy
Date: Saturday, November 11, 2023
Time: 8:30 AM – 7:00 PM
San Diego Pride 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 tracks available; Youth Track for middle and high school-aged youth, Parent/Caregiver/Youth-Serving Professional Track, and a TAY (Transition Age Youth) Track for young adults (ages 18-24). This track will provide young adults with the skills to make an impact on the causes they care about. The TAY track will focus on the professional and emotional development that our future leaders need to create the long-lasting change they wish to see in their communities.
We will update this website with the workshops, speakers, and community partners as we get closer to November.
