Commitment to Impact

Brave’s innovative mentor program and Pathway Plan framework was co-designed with young parents and is underpinned by the evidence based First 1000 Days model that supports early years of life. The Brave SEPT (Supporting Expecting and Parenting Teens) Program is a unique and personalised program which matches a pregnant or parenting young person with a SEPT mentor in their local community or virtual for rural and remote participants and those experiencing isolation due to mental health or other complexities.

Mentors walk alongside their participants throughout the pathway program – from referrals and first contact, to setting goals and working to achieve them, to celebration of their achievements and graduation from the program. The program is available to participants for 12 months, however it can be reduced or extended depending on the parent’s personal circumstances.

You can expect us to:

Brave works together with the pregnant or parenting young person on what is important to them including (but not limited to):

  • educational and workforce participation
  • goal-setting
  • career path guidance
  • health and wellbeing

Brave also provides support or help refer participants on:

  • financial or housing assistance programs
  • everyday infant care
  • transport

Brave Foundation also partners with and promotes existing pregnancy and parenting support services and educational opportunities.
