LIVE LIFE BRAVE Mentoring Program
The LIVE LIFE BRAVE Mentoring program provides peer support & mentoring to young mothers who are completing their high school education. Commenced in 2016 with one-on-one and group mentoring sessions, all our mentors have personal lived experience which means that they relate to the individuals they work with and help them overcome the barriers that so often stand in the way of teenage mothers completing high school and pursing further education or employment.
We believe education is empowering. Completing high school and pursuing further education and/or employment is beneficial to both mother and child, as it creates confidence and a sense of independence. Throughout the LIVE LIFE BRAVE program teenage mothers will not only be able to navigate the obstacles and challenges associated with finishing high as a young mother but they will be equipped with life skills that will enable them to pursue their dreams and to be a positive role model for their child.
“We have had ten students go through this program, most of which have been young teen mothers who have had little or no support. The students have walked away from this program with a stronger support network, increased engagement in school and a confidence in the skills needed to be a mother. Some of the things the students have taken away have been learning how to have positive and healthy relationships, how to live and budget as an independent student, cooking nutritious meal for their babies, accomplishing goals and finishing school” – Learning College Brisbane.
