• CORAL SPRINGS HIGH GAY-STRAIGHT ALLIANCE (GSA) CLUB

     

    MISSION

    Generally, the mission of the GSA Club is to enhance the education of the total student body as it relates to gender identity, sexual orientation, homophobia, and to promote the emotional and mental health of any students that are prone to bullying, shunning, and other forms of marginalization. More specifically, the GSA Club will focus on the emotional and mental well-being of LGBTQ students by providing educational, recreational, and entertainment opportunities for club members.
