An Enchanted Forest, By Members of the GSA Squad
As part of the OK2BME Youth Leadership Group (aka the GSA Squad) we are in charge of picking the theme, deciding on the poster, making the decorations and organizing the overall experience for the Pride Prom. We meet together every other Tuesday to make decisions, discuss plans and sometimes just eat pizza. The leadership group gives us a place to work with others and give back to the community. Having youth plan youth events helps to make the events more interesting and appropriate while also giving the youth a chance to be involved.
