Brave Foundation

Brave Foundation is an Australian not-for-profit charity that equips expecting and parenting young people with resources, referral and education opportunities to facilitate happy, healthy and skilled families over time.

Vision and mission

Vision: To build a village of support and acceptance around expecting and parenting young people.

Mission: To build a virtual village of support around each person by creating a network of meaningful connections to ideas, people, services, and resources.

How Brave Foundation can help

Brave Foundation's core program, Supporting Expecting and Parenting Teens, focuses on connecting a young person with a professional mentor. This is a 1:1 relationship and the role of the mentor is to support the participant in defining and working towards goals that they set for themselves. The mentor also helps each participant to navigate towards those goals by linking them with organisations, resources, and service providers that will help them overcome barriers and reach their goal.
