About Us

Rainbow Labs' mission is to create a safe and supportive environment where LGBTQ+ youth can explore pathways to purposeful lives.

 

The idea of Rainbow Labs launched in 2020 by Jacob Toups to address the unique challenges faced by queer and gender non-conforming youth. Jacob knows these unique challenges as he faced them growing up in a small town in Texas. Bullying and lack of supportive environments in his communities never allowed him to connect to other members of the LGBTQ+ community. This community of peers was not found until much later in college where he found a safe and supportive space to explore his own identity. In creating Rainbow Labs, he wants to ensure the next generation of LGBTQ+ youth find their community, peers, and safe spaces earlier on while gaining a sense of empowerment to propel them into bright futures. In fact, in a recent focus group with LGBTQ+ youth, one of our youth mentioned, "There are not enough mentors out there. I know if I had a mentor, I would feel more supported in my life – school, family, and friends."

 

Rainbow Labs provides a safe and supportive environment for LGBTQ+ youth to thrive. We do this through an innovative afterschool mentoring program for underserved LGBTQ+ youth aged 13-17.
