Join the Pennsylvania Youth Congress!

The Pennsylvania Youth Congress is a membership based organization. The coalition is comprised of leaders from LGBTQ student organizations across the commonwealth. We invite all LGBTQ student and youth organizations to apply for PYC membership. To be eligible for membership, your organization must be a local youth-led LGBTQ organization consisting of not less than 10 members. Affiliates are generally a college, university, or high school LGBTQ organization (i.e. GSAs), but affiliation can be granted to any locally convened youth-led LGBTQ organization meeting PYC criteria.

With your affiliation comes the direct empowerment of being connected to counterpart organizations throughout Pennsylvania and high-impact advocacy across Pennsylvania. Additionally, membership comes with the responsibility of appointing a Delegate to represent your group at official PYC events, who will relay important information to your organization’s membership and organize a delegation to attend the annual Pennsylvania Youth Action Conference.

Completing this application affirms that you have permission from the organization to do so on its behalf.

Affiliation applications are reviewed regularly by PYC youth leaders. Should you have any questions, please contact the Committee on Affiliation at
