Brave Space

Brave Space is a welcoming community committed to supporting LGBTQIA+ students, parents, and guardians at USM.


We provide a space for LGBTQIA+ families at USM:

  • to visibly connect with each other,
  • to find support in each other as they navigate caring for LGBTQIA+ youth, and
  • to encourage growth as they learn more about children and their queer identities in an educational and modern setting.

Who We Are

Caring for LGBTQIA+ youth is a family and community endeavor. If you are a member of the school community who is interested in caring for USM's LGBTQIA+ students, you are invited to participate in Brave Space meetings, which are announced through Tower Weekly and other communications each year. This includes all types of families and all types of employees.
