🍭 Youth Services
GSA Mountain Pride supports GSA’s or Inclusivity clubs across the valley. GSAs, short for Genders & Sexualities Alliances, are student-run organizations for LGBTQ+, questioning, and allied youth to build community and create a safe and brave space. Many youth discuss the issues impacting them in their schools and communities which have caused GSAs to evolve into vehicles for change.
The importance of a GSA in a school has been researched around the world and all results show the positive effects on students health and safety. Harassment and bullying is high among youth and having access to a GSA offers youth a safe space to share their experiences and find support.
Many GSAs focus on three pillars; Social, Support, and Direct Action. Every GSA reflects the environment, school climate, community climate, and the needs of the students accessing the club.
We recognize and respect Mountain Pride’s presence in Vail Valley, which was formerly the ancestral homeland of the Ute and Arapaho tribes. We acknowledge Indigenous peoples as the original stewards of this land and pay tribute to their sacrifices and hardships
