Mission Statement

Our mission is to support high school GSAs and other LGBTQA groups in becoming self-sustaining and developing leadership that utilizes communication skills, social actions and trainings to impact their communities.


Description

Our Community Action Network is a program at LifeWroks, which is the youth development and mentoring program at The Los Angeles LGBT Center.

We attend weekly GSA or other like group meetings at various high schools around LA and conduct a 10 week leadership program for them. In this program we help teach the students to take leadership in their schools by helping them learn how to tell their stories of struggle, strength and leadership and come together to take action. This also helps foster an environment of compassion and kindness between people, and gives them the tools to make an impact in their school and in their society.

We also incorporate collaborative activities and interactive learning in order to build community and make people feel more comfortable to be themselves, connect with each other and participate in leadership both inside and outside of the classroom.
