Big Pride

The Big Pride mentoring program is a partnership between Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwest Michigan and OutFront Kalamazoo.

The Big Pride mentoring program is for youth age 12 to 16 who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, or questioning. LGBTQ+ mentors (Bigs) are matched with LGBTQ+ youth (Littles) to form a supportive friendship to ignite the power and promise of the Little and help guide and support them through their teen years.

Regular information sessions are scheduled to provide details to those interested in finding out more about the program and how to apply to be a Big or a Little. Youth participating in this program must have parent/guardian support to be considered as a Big Pride Little.
