National Youth Pride Services is known for allowing it’s members to travel across the country to attend national, regional and local conferences, events and activities for little to no cost to them. In 2016 we will introduce two new types of events: and international trip to Cancun and Zoom events. Information on our Cancun trip is only available via our mobile app. ALL TIMES ARE CENTRAL STANDARD

#RiseUp, is our signature event that takes place across the country at select events on the local, regional and national level. #RiseUp is tied to National Black LGBTQ Youth Month and allows young adults or those who work with young adults to apply for a mini grant to address a need in their community. Dates are added throughout the year, so check back often.

With so many awesome and amazing members, alumni and friends across the country, it can be tough to get everyone in the same room at the same time – until now. In 2016, NYPS will host Zoom events on various topics (see schedule below). Members and alumni will be able to participate with any device that has a camera. Once a person signs up, confirms their attendance via email, they will be given the password to enter the Zoom event.
