Be Original. Live big. Dare Greatly.


A courage building program specifically designed for adolescents that identify as transgender, based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown. The facilitator will explore topics such as vulner- ability, courage, shame, and worthiness. Participants are invited to examine the things that are holding them back and identify the new choices and practices that will move them toward more authentic living. The primary focus is on developing shame resilience skills and developing daily practices that transform the way we live and love. BOLD™ is about what it takes to get back up and how owning our stories of struggle gives us the power to write a daring new ending. Struggle can be our greatest call to courage and the clearest path to a wholehearted life.
