Day of Silence was Friday, 4/19/13. The Day of Silence has grown into one of the largest student-led actions in the world because of students' determination to directly address the pervasive issue of anti-LGBT behavior and bias in our schools," said Dr. Eliza Byard, GLSEN's Executive Director. "Generations of students have organized and participated in the Day of Silence to express a collective call for schools to be safe and respectful places of learning. GLSEN is once again proud to stand behind these courageous students and their right to receive an education without the harmful disruptions of anti-LGBT name-calling, bullying and discrimination."

Our courses are designed for students entering kindergarten through high school to enjoy an academic enrichment and/or a recreational experience.
