The genesis of the Be Brave program crystallized during a community forum concerning the safety of our children, held in Las Vegas during January 2014. The gathering of local youth-oriented agencies took a twist when a dynamic young lady named Heather Doto shared the heart-rending story of having recently lost her friend to bullying. She issued a challenge for us to help end bullying, and our lives at Nevada Child Seekers were forever changed. As an agency, we are well aware that bullying has taken too many of our young people's lives, and is a prominent factor spurring our youth to run away. At that moment, Nevada Child Seekers, Symbolic Art Center and the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department vowed to stand together and be a voice for victims of bullying. That summer Be Brave was born!
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 a sense of purpose and self-worth while participating in our motivational assemblies and are encouraged to launch campus activities promoting an inclusive atmosphere.
As stated the Be Brave program is making a tremendous impact on our community’s youth. In fact, our most recent 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.
