PRISM Program Expansion
We’re excited to announce the expansion of our PRISM program made possible with the support of the Jewish Foundation of Manitoba – Women’s Endowment Fund, the Canada Post Community Foundation , Wawanesa Insurance and Individual Donors from across Winnipeg!
Since we launched PRISM 5 years ago, the team here at Big Winnipeg has been working hard to provide 2SLGBTQ+ youth with a caring and supportive mentor from the same community!
With our PRISM expansion, we’ll be creating a group mentoring program designed to connect queer youth within our agency and build a sense of community. We’ll also be developing a series of educational workshops, helping our Mentors in supporting Littles, helping parents better understand their child, and helping our Littles build confidence! More details to come later this year!
We’re proud that our PRISM program is managed by staff identifying as 2SLGBTQ+, mobilizing 2SLGBTQ+ volunteers, all to mentor 2SLGBTQ+ youth right here in our city! We truly are bigger together!
