By Gustavo Torrez Program Manager Call for Youth Planning Committee, 8th National LGBT Health Equity Summit
Hey all you youth activist…
Are you between the ages of 16 and 24? Do you care about health and the LGBT community? Do you worry about the toll that smoking and tobacco is taking on the lives of your friends, family and community?
Join our youth planning committee for the 8th National LGBT Health Equity Summit, Bridging the Gap: Promising Practices in LGBT Health and Tobacco Control in Kansas City, Missouri on August 14th, 2012.
The Summit will have workshops, lectures and talks designed to leave participants with the tools and strategies to advance their movement around LGBT health and tobacco control in their local communities, along with an amazing evening event (details coming soon).
The youth committee will work on coming up with and organizing a youth focused activity for the Summit. Responsibilities will include a monthly planning call (or calls as needed), and a passion to be involved in the summit. This will be a great opportunity to network and make connections with organizations and other youth activists from around the country, meet interesting people, get great planning and organizational experience, represent youth and have fun!
We will be offering a limited number of scholarships for Committee Members to attend the Summit. Also please note that youth under the age of 18 will have to be accompanied by a chaperone.
