YEL - Youth Engaged in Leadership

The Youth Leadership Committee at Side by Side is open to LGBTQ+ and allied youth ages 14-20. This program provides a unique opportunity to acquire leadership skills through hands-on projects, and being the voice of our youth at Side by Side.  Youth leaders in the program help plan youth programming, engage in community outreach and education, and plan Side by Side’s annual Alternative Prom. The youth leadership committee meets on Wednesday  evenings, from 6:30 – 8:30 pm, from September through June, at the Side by Side Richmond Youth Center.

To apply for the YLC program, please send your application to Emma Yackso by August 24th, 2018. We will also be accepting rolling applications until November 1, 2018.
