BRAVE exists to empower the local church to gather, inspire and connect with vulnerable girls to prevent human trafficking. 

What's BRAVE?
It's a foster-informed catalytic event specific for foster girls, where they can be celebrated for who they are and reminded of their strength, identity, and worth.
Why BRAVE?
An astonishingly high number of domestic human trafficking survivors are coming from the foster care system. BRAVE is simply the first step to intercept that. It stems from the idea that if traffickers can target foster children to exploit them, why should the church not be able to reach them to affirm them?
How BRAVE works:
A church will host a BRAVE event and invite current foster girls and share empowerment themes and hopeful messages:
1. GATHER: We see you; you matter
2. INSPIRE: We believe you; you can do it
3. CONNECT: We are with you; you're not alone

SCHEDULE AN EVENT

To schedule an event or participate with us, please contact us and provide some information about your organization or group. We would welcome the opportunity to collaberate with other organizations in the southern Michigan area!

BRAVE EVENT
MENTORING

Studies have identified that as many as 70% of people trapped in commercial sexual exploitation were in the foster system at some point in their life. We seek to develop a mentorship program where we come alongside Jackson area youth in foster care. The supportive, healthy relationships formed between mentors and mentees are both immediate and long-term and contribute to a host of benefits for mentors and mentees.

Benefits for youth:

  • Increased high school graduation rates

  • Lower high school dropout rates

  • Healthier relationships and lifestyle choices

  • Improved interpersonal skills

  • Better attitude about school

  • Stronger relationships with parents, teachers, and peers

  • Higher college enrollment rates and higher educational aspirations

  • Decreased likelihood of initiating drug and alcohol use 

  • Enhanced self-esteem and self-confidence
