Creating Guidebooks for NWT GSAs

A project with the Northern Mosaic Network to create GSA guidebooks for students, teachers and schools across the NWT

About the project

With funding from the Government of Northwest Territories, the Northern Mosaic Network is developing a series of guidebooks for GSAs to use across the territory.

These guidebooks are being created in consultation with Northern 2SGLBTQIPA+ youth.

We’re calling on all GSAs across the NWT to enter our contest to win up to $750 for their club!

GSAs are invited to send in a video or written submission answering three questions:

    1. What would your dream GSA look like?
    2. If you had to explain to an adult about why GSAs should exist, or what they’re for, what would you say?
    3. What tips would you give kids who are starting their own GSA?

If you have questions about entering this contest, have your GSA Advisor email us at
