We are thrilled to announce the successful BWC Grant recipient for 2019 is A Brave Life, an organisation that is passionate about equipping, empowering and encouraging young mums to dream big and to “Live Life Brave”.
The BWC Grant will assist A Brave Life to deliver an ongoing mentoring program that provides peer support and mentoring to young mothers who are completing their high school education. The program includes an appreciation of the importance of completing high school, self-worth, goal setting, healthy relationships and support to finish high school as a teenager/young mother.
A Brave Life tells us that teenage and young mothers are 40% less likely to complete high school (year 12) and 54% less likely to find employment.
BWC has awarded A Brave Life our 2019 Grant to improve the futures of these young mothers and their young families.
