What is BRAVE?  BRAVE is a 1-day catalytic event to remind girls they are valuable and worth being celebrated while encouraging them to dream big for what their futures can be.

Who is BRAVE for?  BRAVE is for girls ages 12-18 in vulnerable / at risk / situations like: foster care, homelessness and youth probation. While we are focused on empowering vulnerable girls, we believe in uplifting ALL girls – everyone is invited!

What will happen at BRAVE? In B.C. the event will start in the morning with registration where girls will be given a tote bag with pre-packaged snacks, empowerment resources from their local community, a Brave journal and a Brave t-shirt. Local professionals: artists, dance, self-defense unique to host city will contribute. A plated served lunch will be presented with loving care. Professional motivational Speakers: Cheryl Neubhard and Danielle Strickland and panel guests will be live streamed from a live Brave event held in Toronto, Ontario.

COVID-19 note: We are planning with COVID-19 restrictions in mind: this will be limited to small gatherings in large spaces to allow for social distancing with a maximum of 50 people (including girls, leaders, and volunteers).
