A new program is looking to offer more support to Muskoka’s LGBTQ youth.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Muskoka is rolling out a new pilot mentoring program named PRISM. Executive Director Rebecca Paul says the program is built on the pillars of Pride, Respect, Identity, Safety and most importantly Mentoring.

The program will run for one year and Paul says the hope is to help kids who identify as LGTBQ to create deeper connections with their peers in the community. Mentorship will be offered to kids between the ages of nine and 17.

If your child would like to be a part of this program you can more details on how to get them involved here.
