General Assembly Youth

The GA Youth Experience

October 2020: General Assembly youth is shifting to emergent programming, a democratized staff selection process, and horizontal leadership structure!

November 2020: General Assembly 2021 is all virtual this year! Youth do not need a sponsor to attend GA virtually, your parent/legal guardian is ultimately responsible for your supervision and wellbeing while attending GA. 

With a virtual event, building community is even more important. We're intentionally focusing on creating events designed to build a strong community for General Assembly (GA) participants where each person knowsthey can bring their whole selves (all their identities) to GA and be welcome, and that they can support each other and count on each other to get the most out of the experience.

Building Radically Inclusive Community

This year's GA is virtual, which means no exhausting travel, no pricey hotel stays, no cold-pizza-for-breakfast-again, and NO ADULT SPONSORS NEEDED! Your parent/legal guardian is responsible for your supervision, health and well-being, just like always.
