Community Leadership Program is a 12-week, experiential program for LGBTQQIA+ youth and allies, ages 18-24, designed to deepen participants’ understanding of social issues impacting their communities, while supporting them in developing a culminating group project that addresses a specific community need.

Throughout this 12-week program, you will:

  • Develop your leadership skills by conceiving, planning, and implementing a group project that will positively impact our community!
  • Practice applying your problem-solving, critical thinking, research, outreach, and public speaking skills in a caring environment
  • Have the option to attend office hours and receive one-on-one support in identifying your professional/personal goals and taking steps to meet them. This can mean anything from working on a resume, writing a cover letter, applying for jobs, completing mock interviews, or anything you want to work on!
  • Gain access to LYRIC’s one-on-one youth advocacy services that can help connect you with other resources in the community and services to help you succeed!

The Spring 2020 Cohort of CLP wanted to provide an easily accessible resource guide for people who are undocumented and need help finding resources regarding their immigration status, housing, food, health insurance, and other needs necessary for individual and collective well-being so they decided to co-create a zine and make sure it was translated in three different languages: Mandarin, Spanish, and English.

This zine was made with tons of love, intention, and care, and it wouldn’t have been possible without the persistence of Caden, Camisha, Emery, Esteban, Eva, Harley, Jasmine, Jonathan, Karla, Katie, Peihua, QiongYue, Rainie, Sabrina, Sophie, and Vanessa.
