UPDATE: Mini Restructure Retreat

Join us for our mini day long restructure retreat where we will be talking about the current structure of Stonewall Youth and what we need to improve.

At this retreat, we will be making a lot of important decisions regarding the current structure of Stonewall including: How to restructure the program director position, revisiting and revising our policies and code of conduct, recreating our mission statement and more! Stay tuned for a more in depth agenda.

This retreat is open to the greater Stonewall Youth community: current and past youth, volunteers, staff members, interns, board members. If you have been involved in Stonewall and feel that you have insight into how to better restructure the organization so that it aims to meet its purpose and mission, we invite you to attend!

Lunch and snacks will be provided. 

Until then, we have two more Really Radical Restructure (RRR) meetings Wednesdays at 7:00 pm at the Stonewall space! These meetings are where a lot of the prevalent and important topics get discussed. Open to the Stonewall Youth Community.

UPDATE: Community Meetings

Yesterday Stonewall had its 2nd Wednesday Community Meeting! The turnout was great (a variety of current and past youth, interns, board members, previous staff!) The conversation centered around our overall goals for Stonewall Youth, as well as a more pressing overall goal for the structure of the new Program Director job. Even though we were interrupted by a fire alarm (false alarm), we talked about a lot of great ideas and we’re excited to share those at drop ins!

If you can’t make it/don’t come to drops ins and want to be kept in the loop as well as give your input, check out this shared google doc where the notes from each meeting will be posted, and where you can comment on them!

Community Meetings at Stonewall Youth

Stonewall Youth is currently in a period of reconstruction! We as a community are working on addressing some problems with the way Stonewall is currently structured, and we want all the input we can get! Tonight we started the conversation by brainstorming ideas about ways the paid staff positions could be constructed differently to also include paid youth positions. Everyone (youth, past and current volunteers, staff, interns members of the stonewall community in general) is invited to be apart of this continuing and all encompassing conversation about how to better Stonewall Youth!!! Share your input WEDNESDAYS at 7:00pm, right after support group!
We are currently working on ways to expand these community meetings beyond this date and time.
