Powerful Voices: I wanted to send you information about a new group that we are going to be starting, and was wondering if you would be able to forward this onto the GSA's that are currently active in Seattle School district. I have attached a flier as well as an adult nomination form that staff can send in for youth they think could benefit or would want to join the group.

In this group we will be discussing gender identity, sexuality and relationships through social justice frames in addition to developing safe space, building community among other queer/questioning/gender non-conforming youth and HAVING FUN!

Below i have listed out the eligibility for the group. In addition i have attached a flier that goes into more detail and is also something that if you may have youth who are interested you could pass onto. Lastly, there is an adult nomination form that if you know youth who may be a great fit for the great you may submit to me and i can get in contact with that youth.


*Eligibility Requirements:
‚ 12-18 years old
‚ Socialized and identifies as female/socialized and does not identify as female
‚ Identify as LGBTQ or is questioning/curious about sexuality and gender identity
‚ Enrolled in school or live within the City of Seattle
‚ Aware of and open to working in a group, supported by an all-female team
‚ Open to sharing their own personal thoughts, opinions, experiences, and emotions about their lives and the topics we cover in a group setting
‚ Has demonstrated follow through for initiative & consistency of program-i.e. completed application, present for orientation and closing celebration, called if late or needed to reschedule, etc.
‚ Is willing and open to try new things and has a positive attitude
‚ Willingness and commitment to attending 80% of the program days, PLUS phone interview/orientation, community closing event & 3 one-on-one support sessions with PV staff.

Priority given to low-income youth, youth of color, immigrant and refugee youth, youth w/ truancy issues and youth at-risk of sexual exploitation

NOTE:
Powerful Voices believes that gender is a socially constructed identity and that [GIRL] is a creation of the socialization and messages that a person assigned as “female” is given at birth. Our expertise and programs reside in serving youth with personal experiences and issues that socialized females face; therefore we define [girl] as any person who has been socialized female, whether they identify as female or not. Our goal is to build safe, inclusive communities for female-identified/socialized youth and encourage youth to explore their own personal expression of gender-identity and radicalize the structure of binary genders.

Powerful Voices acknowledges our own room for growth in serving gender non-conforming youth in our community. We honor the strength & struggle for gender non-conforming youth who seek safe community building. We aim to increase our allyship, education, training and capacity to responsibly serve gender non-conforming youth in our programs.

Thanks so much in advance for your support and please spread the word about this unique opportunity!

STUDENT PROJECTS @ UNITY '12

"All Expenses Paid" -- Opportunity for Native American, Hispanic/Latino, Asian, GLBT Students -- Unity Journalism Conference --
This summer, the conferences will be merging together as they do every 4 years, so the opportunity is open to Native America, Hispanic/Latino, Asian and GLBT students (this group is newly a part of the program, so I'm not sure what the requirements are). Students don't have to have journalism experience, but they do need to be interested in writing and have a pretty good handle on it. If an applicant is accepted, the conference pays all expenses for the one week opportunity (flight, hotel, airport transfers, meal stipend).

I'd really like to get the word out to Seattle students who are interested in participating. The application isn't open until January, but I just wanted to send you a note in case I forget later. I hope you can send this to folks who work with underrepresented students. Here's a link to the website for more information:
