Queer & Trans Youth Council Mission and Vision

Mission Statement:

Founded in 2012 by a group of queer and trans high school students, the Queer and Trans Youth Council of Santa Cruz County (QTYC) endeavors to heighten a sense of community and solidarity among the LGBTQIA+ youth of Santa Cruz County. The council also strives to bridge the larger community as a whole with LGBTQIA+ and ally youth and tackle hardships the LGBTQIA+ youth face by being an advisory chamber to the Queer Youth Task Force of Santa Cruz County. The council will highlight voices by organizing themed events for young LGBTQIA+ and ally people and combating prejudice in schools, religious organizations, and extracurricular environments of Santa Cruz County.

Our Vision:

For LGBTQIA+ youth to be able to live a life of prosperity and to be accepted when authentically expressing their identity in their communities.
