Be BRAVE is a weekly 1-hour support group for girls ages 12-17 built on the principles of sisterhood and self-esteem. BRAVE is an acronym for Brilliant Resilient Attuned Virtuous and Empowered. This group aims to help each girl embody the pillars of the BRAVE acronym and build lasting bonds with one another. Each week we learn and use tools to teach emotional regulation, coping skills ,social and self-awareness, and positive self-esteem. This is an open group, so we welcome you to join us on the journey to Be B.R.A.V.E.
Meeting the needs of our female youth
The group meets to do activities, address self-esteem, work through challenges and learn healthy values around their worth. Partnership with GLOW, another up-and-coming girls’ group is aligning with BE BRAVE to do collaborative and collective community work together, with a spend towards girl gang violence.
