Lady Gaga foundation launches youth board
Pop star Lady Gaga's Born This Way Foundation has invited young to the launch of its Youth Advisory Board which will allow youngsters to make a difference to their lives.
The 26-year-old charity aims to empower young people and give them more opportunities. It invited 24 young people aged between 17 and 23 to Paramount Pictures in Los Angeles for a three-day summit to discuss how to create a kinder, braver world through the organization, reported Access Hollywood.
Gaga's mother, Cynthia Germanotta, the foundation's president, said, "The goal of the youth advisory board is to reflect and magnify the strength, determination, creativity, and capacity of our youth, and to have them provide insight on the issues that are most important to them.
The summit comes after the foundation unveiled its Born Brave Nation, which consists of groups of supporters dedicated to helping young people deal with challenges they face including homosexuality and bullying. The new members of the youth advisory board will represent the viewpoints of other people their age.
