Since 2011, the It Gets Better Project has provided support to individuals, groups, and organizations working with lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) youth in countries around the world through our International Program.  

One of these is the George Washington School of English, a language institute based in Madrid, Spain. The G.W. School of English brings students from around the world to Los Angeles, California each summer to give them an immersive opportunity to learn English and engage with American people and cultures.

This year, the G.W. School of English, with help from the It Gets Better Project and our affiliate, It Gets Better España, is offering a special trip for LGBT students. The program will provide the same English-immersion experience, while also giving the students the chance to participate in LGBT-friendly activities that will make their stay in the United States more comfortable and enriching.
