Okay, here goes. I NEED HELP.|
I'm trying to start a Gay-Straight Alliance at my high school, and that's where the help is needed. I have to find a sponsor [working on it] and then we have to write a proposal to the school about the GSA, stating our purpose, why it would benefit the school, etc. And... yeah, need help. The Assist. Principal was going to show me a sample letter that a club had made but I think she was a little too busy and it slipped her mind.
I may need help with the whole convincing the administration bit, or I may not. Judging from her reaction it's looking more like I won't, because she was really supportive of the idea. She actually thought we'd had one last year, or just in recent years, but we haven't in the four years I'd been at the school.
So that's where you all come in. I need the purposes you guys use for you GSA, official documents you present to administrators, even proposal letters if you have them. And then what do you do in your GSA meetings? What sort of events are planned, and how does the GSA work with the school? I'm greedy for information and am willing to take whatever I can get.
PLEASE! The sooner I get this all together, the better. The Assist. Principal said she'd even present it at the next school meeting if I had it by then. So thanks to anyone who helps, anything will be of great value.
And for anyone interested, I posted a column I wrote for my school paper about prejudice faced for being bisexual here, along with the response from the potential club sponsor.
