GSA clubs provide support and create a more positive school environment through peer norms against bullying.

We support 40+ Gay-Straight Alliance clubs in high schools across Virginia & are a fully accredited chapter of GLSEN National.

At our founding in 2000 there were no GSA clubs in Central Virginia - today there are 40+ Gay Straight Alliance clubs active in high schools throughout Central Virginia's urban and rural areas. Peer-to-peer student interactions and norm-setting are extremely effective in increasing acceptance and reducing bullying in schools.

We sponsor two free GSA Summits each school year to help build GSA leadership and stregnthen GSA programs. Our Spring 2014 Summit had 33 participants - the second largest attendance ever! We also provide free program materials to GSA clubs for Ally Week, Day of Silence, and other GLSEN programs.

Our Public Education Program provides training experiences for current and future school staff and teachers.

By participating in various community public festivals and events, our Outreach Program educates and provides resources about GLBTQ youth to the community at large.

We also monitor legislation filed in the Virginia State Assembly that may be detrimental to school GSA clubs and help educate and fight against such measures.

As a totally volunteer organization, 100% of your donations go directly to programs and services for GSA youth in schools.
