Overall description of the GLBTA Pride Center Ambassador program
Ambassadors are student leaders who support the learning and development of GLBTA students and their peers, and foster a campus climate of inclusion and equity. Ambassadors serve as role models who set the tone and culture of the Pride Center and who actively promote both the Pride Center and the GLBTA community in a positive light.Whether you identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, or as an ally -- if you want to get more involved in advocating for the GLBTA community, then this opportunity may be for you.
Ambassadors can rely upon the financial and educational resources of the GLBTA Pride Center department as well as expect support from members of the Pride Coalition.

I am a senior Theatre major with minors in GLBT Studies and Asian Studies.
Ben Miele (I'm the one wearing a hat in the picture!)
Ben is a senior at Bridgewater State, majoring in
Political Science with a concentration in Legal Studies and triple
minors in Psychology, Criminal Justice, and GLBT Studies. This is his
first time working with the Pride Center and he is very excited to try
and improve the BSU community for its GLBT students.
My name is Kelly Neufell (female pronouns please) and I am a senior here at
BSU majoring in Social Work with a minor in GLBT studies.
This year, my main goal in being an ambassador is to create a safe social and learning environment for GLBTA high school and middle school students by making a Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) convention at Bridgewater.
I feel that in order to achieve our main goal of creating a safer and more inclusive campus for BSU students--and higher education students around the country--we need to nurture the leadership abilities of those younger than us who are about to go into college. In addition, it will give those students great first-hand insight into what it is like in the high schools and middle schools of modern day America for GLBTA students in Massachusetts. This project supports my continuing life goal of creating safer schools for students and allies of the queer community.
