Strong student leaders are the foundation of strong GSAs. Mazzoni Center supports these students as they become engaged citizens of our democratic society by participating on the Student Leadership Board (SLB).
Participating Members offer their perspective on school climate/culture in Philadelphia, sex education policies affecting LGBTQ youth, and wellness initiatives in their communities. These youth receive direct support from Ally Safe Schools Program to sustain their GSAs and to learn organizing/facilitation skills. These youth are also instrumental in planning Philly Youth Pride, Citywide, and the LEAD Student Conference. Members are also invited to attend the ALLY Retreat hosted by the Mazzoni Center.
Meetings take place twice a month at the Mazzoni Center located at 1348 Bainbridge Street Philadelphia PA 19147. Septa Tokens provided for all youth requiring transportation assistance.
