Students who are interested working in professional research, project development skills, and ways to include a voice of LGBTQ history/culture in their communities, should take this opportunity. The ONE Archives Foundation is currently accepting applications for potential youth ambassadors for their Queer History Program for high school students. Through this program, individuals are mentored by the foundation’s members by involving groups on hands-on research projects and interactive discussions.

The program includes LGBTQ history presentations by community organizers, group discussions on queer topics, research and workshops, and field trips to affiliated organizations and landmarks throughout Los Angeles. Ultimately, these activities will guide each student to create a personal passion project that shows off their knowledge of LGBTQ history and culture. The culmination of these individual projects will be showcased as a collective exhibition at ONE Gallery, West Hollywood.

In addition, being an ambassador also shows you’re capable of being an advocate for others, plus it looks good to colleges when you send off applications. It can also be way to earn community service hours. Also, a recommendation from a teacher is a necessary part to the application as well. The deadline to submit applications is Friday, April 26th.
