The Canadian Centre for Gender and Sexual Diversity is proud to present our annual national Gender and Sexuality Alliance Leadership Forum. The year 2019 marks the sixth year that we are hosting this program, which invites 75 GSM (gender and sexual minorities) and allied students (ages 14-17) from across the country to participate in a week of leadership education. This training event will take place at The Terry Fox Canadian Youth Centre (1805 Gaspé Ave, Ottawa) from May 7th-May 11th, 2019. The students will learn to be leaders in their school and youth communities on topics of GSM identities, diversity, anti-bullying, anti-racism, and mental health. Concurrently, the participants of the event will be trained on how to run a successful Gender and Sexuality Alliance club and related activities at their school.
