Gender Spectrum is looking for young people in grades 9-12 for this year’s Youth Council! Young people can apply now for the position, to serve through April 2018 on this group that works together to help create more gender inclusive environments in schools, homes, and communities nationwide. We’re looking for young people of all gender identities who are passionate, motivated, and want to be agents of change for all children and youth.

Youth Council members are interested in topics related to gender, enjoy using social media, and are passionate about building a positive and supportive community. The Council will meet twice a month through online video calls facilitated by Gender Spectrum staff. During  meetings, members will work in small groups to create content around gender issues. While the majority of the content will be video, we welcome applicants with an interest in other formats.

Gender Spectrum highly values diversity. Youth of all gender identities are welcome and we strongly encourage youth of color, youth from different areas of the country, and youth of all faith traditions to apply.
