Genders & Sexualities Alliance Network (GSA Network) is an intergenerational LGBTQ racial and gender justice organization that empowers and trains Queer, Transgender and Gender Non-Conforming (TGNC), and allied youth leaders to advocate, organize, and mobilize an intersectional movement for safer schools and healthier communities. Our overall strategy for fighting for educational justice is to work with grassroots, youth-led groups and GSAs, empowering them to educate their schools and communities, advocate for just policies that protect LGBTQ youth from harassment and violence, and organize in coalition with other youth groups across identity lines to address broader issues of oppression.
What is the Board of Directors?
GSA Network's Board of Directors is a group of youth and adult allies who work in partnership to oversee the organization. Board members are responsible for ensuring GSA Network stays true to its mission, and engage in projects like strategic planning, fundraising, evaluating the job performance of the Co-Executive Directors, reviewing and approving budgets and financial audits.
What is the commitment for the Board of Directors?
*During the global COVID-19 pandemic, the Board is only meeting virtually via Zoom.
Each board member signs a Board Contract that further details what the organization expects from board members, and what support the organization provides for board members.
What Does it Mean to be an Adult Board Member?
Adult board members should be at minimum 25 years of age at the time of application submission. (Current program participants and recent alumni should see our Youth Board Member Application.)
Adult board members will learn from the youth board members about the GSA Network programming on the ground that informs the work of the board. Travel for adult board members (typically 1-2 trips to Oakland per year, currently suspended due to COVID-19) is not covered by GSA Network.
