Confidence, Courage, and Community at First Pride Plus Summit

Over 130 YES Prep students united for the first Pride Plus Summit on April 24, 2017. The theme of the summit was Confidence. Courage. Community. School leaders welcomed YES Prep students to the Summit with the video below. Students then attended sessions on knowing their rights, LGBT history and activism, and identity. In the afternoon, students chose sessions on coming out and navigating relationships safely, social media safety, gender, self-care and mental heath, and media representation and literacy. Additionally, students had the opportunity to access resources and meet with organizations, including the ACLU, PFLAG, and Gender Infinity.
