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 interested in caring for USM's LGBTQIA+ students, you are invited to participate in Brave Space meetings. This includes all types of families and all types of employees.
All meetings take place on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 p.m. in Upper School room 4103, located across the hall from the Lubar Center for Innovation and Exploration. Meeting dates for the 2022-23 school year are:
