Meet our members

An outstanding community of members makes the Brave Starts experience unique. Each workshop enables you to meet others and build your network.  Members connect over shared interests. They meet up, research and look out for opportunities for each other.  They tell us that getting to know others in similar situations validates their experience and helps them move forward.
