Lady Gaga - Lady Gaga Foundation Launches Youth Board

Lady Gaga's charity has launched a Youth Advisory Board.

The Born This Way Foundation - which aims to empower young people and give them more opportunities - 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.

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.

''It is the ideas, concerns, and aspirations of these youth that will shape our working model. My daughter and I envisioned the foundation as a youth movement, and through these young leaders, we will learn how to best engage the youth of America in co-creating a kinder, braver world.''

The summit comes after the foundation unveiled its Born Brave Nation, which consists of groups of supporters who are 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.
