About the National Awareness Education Project

Brave Foundation aims to distribute resources, information and scholarship opportunities to all secondary schools, hospitals and pregnancy support centres in Australia to promote continuation of secondary education, role modelling and support services for the expecting or parenting teen, and information for those that might be a part of their supporting community.

Brave Foundation assists schools in retaining the expecting or parenting teen with their education by offering assistance with policy development and individualised education program plans.

This will be by distribution of a Brave Foundation pack to each stakeholder comprising an introductory letter, Policy Standard to continue education for expecting/parenting student, poster, scholarship opportunities and resource book Brave Little Bear.

Resource packs will be delivered nationally to:

  • Secondary schools – government, combined and private
  • Hospitals – public and private
  • Pregnancy support centres
