2017 Queer-Straight Alliance Retreat
Age: High School Students
Across the country students are working to create safer places for LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning and Queer) young people. School clubs and student leading initiatives that focus on LGBTQ youth have been a driving force in improving school environments, and influencing social change within communities. The Queer-Straight Alliance Retreat (formerly, Gay-Straight Alliance Retreat), is a weekend designed to bring together LGBTQ young people, straight allies, community organizers and school staff. The weekend offers a place for young people connect with one another, share their voices, develop friendships work together towards LGBTQ justice. If you or someone you know is a high school student interested in helping create environments that are inclusive and affirming, pack your bags and head to camp. Unirondack staff, community educators and trainers will be offering games, activities and workshops that will help participants develop their leadership skills and address LGBTQ issues in their community.
