CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Campus Pride will host a community forum and panel on Feb. 12 at The LGBT Community Center of Charlotte, 617 E. 28th St., 7:30 p.m., that will focus on how to develop meaningful involvement between LGBT youth and local organizations.
Because of the misperceptions surrounding LGBT youth, involving them in organizational life has been challenging for adults, organizers say. What seems to be important to note is that these young people’s participation helps to shape them for future leadership within the community. Making them a viable part of the day-to-day organizational functions provides a way to energize them and ignite their passion and commitment.
