Queer Summer Organizing Lab – Deadline: April 30 2012

Queer Youth Space’s Queer Summer Organizing Lab is a paid, nine-week community organizing training program for queer and trans* youth. Participants will spend their Saturdays mornings from June 16th to August 11th attending anti-oppression workshops taught by multi-generational teams of experienced local activists. Training topics will include Queer Identity 101, Dismantling Racism and Classism, Queer Organizing History, Grassroots Fundraising, and Rethinking Queer Legal Reforms: Beyond Marriage and DADT. The program culminates in a one-day activism conference for the community that is organized and led by QSOL participants. Applicants must be able to participate in all nine weeks of the program, and will receive $330 for the summer, which works out to roughly $10/hr. The deadline for applications is April 30th.
