Acting on courage is the first step to any kind of self development. Once we learn to be courageous ourselves, we can spark courage within our societies

HOW to be courageous

This is why we have created an entire resiliency program for schools and youth around Courage.“Our Courage Program uses movement and original music we have produced with local emcees Rubix and Rebecca Dawn. It takes students away from just simply talking about courage to experiencing it. Along with the music and movement, we created a book that navigates teachers and students on HOW to be courageous.”, Connie Jakab.

A local school teacher at Simon Fraser has this to say about the Courage Program:

It was the best use of time I could imagine. These kids come to school struggling with many issues the Courage Program addresses. The program addressed the issues and gave the students a chance to escape and experience courage.
