Each year a diverse team of students from across the country participate in a four-day media and safe schools summit led by GLSEN's communications department. During their four days of training students will learn about GLSEN's safe schools work as they participate in workshops and gain experience with media coaching, blogging and sharing their story.

Over the past three years Student Ambassadors have been interviewed by national print and online media, attended press briefings and lobbied on Capitol Hill and shared their stories at major GLSEN events. Many have also written for the GLSEN blog, testified for safer schools in their districts, supported local GLSEN Chapters and stewarded their own independent safe schools campaigns.
