Youth Summit is a FREE day-long event that draws lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and allied youth from all over the Greater Cincinnati area and beyond. With speakers, workshops, and panels on topics from coming out to starting a GSA to self-defense, as well as engaging social opportunities, lunch, and a youth-led "dinner-tainment", the Youth Summit educates and engages youth in their schools and communities. The Summit is designed for youth ages 14+, as well as adult allies of LGBTQ youth and those interested in learning more about GLSEN's work for safe schools.

Some workshop examples:

  • Trans* 101
  • Film selections from the CNKY Film Festival
  • A Nickel Tour of LGBT History
  • Beyond Stonewall: Hot LGBTQ Reads -- young adult LGBTQ books through time
  • Ain't Nobody Got Time for That: Youth Voices on Community Engagement
  • Queer International: queer rights around the world
  • Triple Threat: Being Young, Gay and Black
  • Ohio Legislation Bootcamp
  • Inclusive Classroom Curriculum -- adding LGBTQPIA themes to existing curriculum
  • Fact and Fiction: Teen Weight Management
