GLSEN Connecticut works to ensure safe schools for ALL students, regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity.
This is what our amazing student leaders have to say about the influence GLSEN Connecticut has had on their lives:
"The impact that GLSEN has had on me is HUGE. As a person, I am more confident. I am able to go up to people and have actual conversations. I can educate people without being as shy as I used to be. As an organizer, I have gained more skills that will be helpful to me in the real world."
Blaine Pawlak, Student Organizing Leader, Scofield Magnet Middle School
"I loved coordinating with True Colors and having the opportunity to co-facilitate a workshop. Being able to educate audiences and spread GLSEN’s message was not only invigorating but empowering. It was an amazing experience I will carry with me for life."
Mercedes Horner, Student Organizing Leader, Greenwich High School
"GLSEN Connecticut has helped me grow not only in confidence and as a person but feel the maturity of responsibility. Not to mention this group has helped me meet so many new people and has given me the opportunity to encourage others to love themselves for who they are."
Hanna Bacha, Student Organizing Leader, Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts
GLSEN Connecticut is an entirely volunteer-based organization, so donations of any amount will greatly improve our ability to get the word out and make schools safer for EVERYONE!
