What is B.R.A.V.E?

The B.R.A.V.E programme is a Youth Development Programme that stands for Building Resilience And Voicing Empowerment. It is a primary level intervention for Year 9 or 10 secondary school students experiencing distress and expressing the need for help with mental health/AOD issues.

At its core, the B.R.A.V.E programme, grounded on practice-based evidence, is about activating the leadership of young people, and supporting them to be a catalyst for positive change in their schools and with their peers. This programme is offered to schools, alternative education providers and PTE’s and is delivered in a minimum of 10 weeks, adapting to the needs of the community.
