By now, each Brave Heart should have received the following items:  

  1. Brave Heart T-Shirt

  2. Brave Heart Journal

  3. Poetry Book -Brown Girl Dreaming

We ask that for each Saturday Brave Heart session that attendees wear their T-shirts, bring their journals and Brown Girl Dreaming books.  


For this semester we have some big plans, as follows:

  • Thematic Saturdays

  • Weekly Showcase of Brave Heart art/ talent

  • Opportunity to support the community by giving back (adopting an organization where we can write letters of thanks, for example)

  • Pen Pals (sharing a writing experience with other Brave Hearts in different states)

  • Super Saturdays-A planned schedule to have dynamic career experts share information on interesting occupations and roles

  • Collage of poetry that each Brave Heart will contribute to this semester

  • Commerce Showcase (our culminating activity where Brave Hearts bring art, other items, and talent to Utopian Academy to be displayed in June)



Please know that our mentors are hard at work making contact with Brave Hearts each week in addition to our weekly grade-level meetings within Teams.  We are asking for each Brave Heart to attend these important weekly meetings, have their cameras on, and be ready to contribute.   Brave Hearts is a leadership & empowerment building organization and each voice needs to be heard.  Connecting with mentors is an added benefit to the program. Parents, please encourage your daughters to take an active role in all that Brave Hearts has to offer.


Thanks so much,

Jennifer Boykins
