GSA Clubs

According to GLSEN's research, supportive student clubs (such as Gay-Straight Alliance/Gender-Sexuality Clubs) have been shown to have a positive impact on school climate for LGBTQ+ and all students. Other benefits of being involved in a GSA Club are the leadership and activism skills it helps to develop in students.
