Trans Student Educational Resources

Trans Student Educational Resources is a youth-led organization dedicated to transforming the educational environment for trans and gender non-conforming students through advocacy and empowerment. Founded in 2011, it is the only national organization led by trans youth.

In addition to our focus on creating a more trans-friendly education system, our mission is to educate the public and teach trans activists how to be effective organizers. We believe that justice for trans and gender nonconforming youth is contingent on an intersectional framework of activism. Ending oppression is a long-term process that can only be achieved through collaborative action.

We speak at conferences, train teachers, collaborate with other advocacy organizations, organize the only national Trans Youth Leadership Summit, support trans-related events, provide leadership training for trans youth, host scholarships for trans students, publish materials about trans education, help create transgender-supportive policies, and promote trans representation in media.
