BOOSTING BRAVERY

When it comes to tackling challenging emotions and relationships, girls have innate strength, skills and gutsiness...

When it comes to boosting girls' skills, who better than older girls?

Changing The Narrative

As a society, we often tell girls to “stop the drama” rather than commend them for being gutsy in trying to sort out tough relationships and talking about emotions.

HOW IT WORKS

BB creates small “teams” of older and younger girls from around the country. Over Zoom, the older girls lead their teams in interactive modules for an hour a week for 8 weeks.

It is all about having fun while also boosting skills around online and in-person challenges.

It's a FREE program! 

Girl
Leadership

Girls benefit from leading younger girls in boosting mental wellness skills. 

Everyone benefits from a society that truly values spreading such skills and girls can lead the way. 

Relatable Science

Providing fascinating research and brain science in each BOOSTING BRAVERY Module helps girls feel respected and motivated.

My experience being a high school leader has been amazing!  I definitely wish I had been able to do something like this when I was in middle school. It would’ve helped me be way more prepared for high school. 

GABRIELLE R. 

High School Leader

Being able to work with another high schooler is really nice because we have each had our own experiences and are able to bring unique perspectives to the program.

TESSA S.

High School Leader

Every single night after we have a session I go downstairs and tell my mom all about it.

It’s amazing being passionate about something you never knew you had a passion for!

ZOEY S.

High School Leader

During one of the modules we were talking about the difference between "processing and gossiping" and I wish I had learned it in middle school because it's such an important distinction.

OLIVIA W.

High School Leader

I really enjoyed BB because I got a chance to meet people my age and the high school leaders were easy to talk to. I particularly liked when we got to play out scenarios about issues that we face at school, such as making friends.

This program was really great! I hope to do it next year.

I would definitely recommend it to other middle school girls.

ANNA A. 

Middle School Teamer 

It was unlike anything I’d ever done before, a unique experience that has made me more comfortable in social settings with people my age and taught me methods I use in my life now.

MAURA L. 

Middle School Teamer 

I really LOVE, LOVE role playing!  I think it's really helpful to see skills being used in real life, plus it's just fun!

HANNA S. 

Middle School Teamer 

The program has sparked productive conversations within our home...the different personalities and perspectives of the group sparked a conversation about the value in interacting with people different from ourselves.

I'm always intrigued to learn what was discussed. It often sparked a conversation on what I would do (or have done). More than once I've said, "Oh, I have to try that!"

MELISSA B.
BB Parent

She told me it’s fun and great to talk in a small group. She particularly liked the meeting on emotions because she likes learning and talking about emotions.

KIM M.
BB Parent

She’s been excited by the content and tools that have been shared. For example, she was excited to share how she would use the DARTS tool for setting goals and SAIL for navigating situations involving gossiping.
