JUMP-START STUDENT LEADERSHIP TEAM
Our Jump-Start Student Leadership Team is composed of bright, energetic, and dedicated student leaders from all across the state who are committed to making their schools safer for ALL students, regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity/expression. Their main goal this year is to provide more support and resources to LGBT middle school students and their allies.
STUDENTS OF COLOR ORGANIZING (SOCO)
Our brand new SOCO Team is led by a diverse group of students who are committed to increasing visibility, support, and advocacy for LGBT students of color and their allies. The team is currently working on a year-long website project that seeks to create a safer and more inclusive space for LGBT students of color and their allies. If you're a student of color or ally interested in getting involved with this project, please let us know.
