The Search For Our Next National Youth President

National Youth Pride Services is an intellectual, creative urban movement that focuses on socially forward, leadership and development activities for black LGBTQ young adults.


Our mission is to empower black LGBTQ young adults and their allies through leadership development, networking and collaborative events, in order to better improve their quality of life.

One significant way we do this is the election of our national youth president. Active member’s who meet the requirements are sent an invitation to run for the position. Those who accept begin a 3 month election process that is like none other in our field.

Candidates are given full access to our members, alumni, board members, donors and allies – who all get to vote. The national youth president serves as the face of NYPS and NYPS’s mission is to empower ALL black LGBTQ young adults so our election is not limited to just our members, but anyone.

There is a candidates forum in December that anyone can watch LIVE via app, desktop or tablet. It is moderated by the NYPS Board of Directors.

Our election takes place via our app, on the Monday observed as Martin Luther King Jr day in America.
