For Students


There are many ways to push for change in your community.   We are here to help you get started or come up with ideas. 

Make a powerful statement by participating in the Day of Silence. Bring your school community together with Solidarity Week. Teach respect by celebrating No Name Calling Week. Foster connections and organize together year-round by starting a Gender and Sexuality Alliance at your school. 

Student leaders are the most valuable, powerful base of action that exists in our country today. When students lead the way, real change happens. Use these resources to work for positive change and build community in your school!

The GLSEN SHINE Team is a group of student leaders working to create safer schools and communities throughout Washington.
