The NYPS Network is a project of National Youth Pride Services, a creative, urban, intellectual and socially forward movement for Black LGBTQ youth and young adults in the U.S., Canada and countries in Africa.
NYPS is a membership based movement for those 16 to 29 years of age. It has become one of the fastest growing movements for LGBTQ young adults because it is not an organization, it’s a movement. The traditional roles of a organization are not used at NYPS. It’s also youth -led.
This movement is perfect for those who do not have alot of time on their hands, are heavily involved in other things – but feel they should be doing something for others.
Minimum Requirements of a member is:
- 3 seconds a week (time it takes post on social media about the LGBTQ movement)
