Be Brave stands as Las Vegas’ newest offering aimed squarely at our community’s most vulnerable population: children. By empowering students to make positive choices while seeking to combat the childhood bullying crisis, this program has found a wellspring of support amongst our community. This self-esteem boosting initiative is also unique in that it’s not a one and done presentation. Oh, and did we mention it is FREE?! :)

Be Brave continually engages students throughout the year and facilitates partnerships with administrators, teachers, counselors and parents. This program kick-starts conversations, notifying children what programs are available to assist them with challenges they face at home and at school. Be Brave isn’t just an assembly, it is a youth lead initiative! That’s why it works. Children are empowered to lead their own anti-bullying initiatives on campus. When our children feel valued and respected that is where true change begins.

Today’s childhood bullying statistics demonstrates why the Be Brave program is so imperative, letting youth know that they have the power to seek help for issues that may cause them to run away, fall victim to a predator or harm themselves. Children regain their purpose and self worth while participating in motivational assemblies and on campus activities.

As stated the Be Brave program is making a tremendous impact on our community’s youth. In fact, our Be Brave campaign survey revealed that 98 percent of students exhibited an increase in knowledge following our presentations, and 100 percent of faculty members rated the program as a valuable educational tool.

I’m so excited to be part of this innovative program that continues to impact student lives throughout the year. In the beginning I was nervous to present to high schoolers because I thought they wouldn’t care about these types of presentations. Immediately after my first assembly students came up to me thanking me for giving them a voice. It all started with a vision – stopping bullying and inspiring people to be united. – Heather Doto

Do you think these types of presentations are important to your children? If so, why?

Do you think the students were inspired to help others? If so, why?
