The goal of the BRAVE Programs is to develop each child’s ability to reduce the risk of victimization by providing knowledge and skills about safety. Rest assured that the workshops are fun, educational and age appropriate. As an added bonus, your Scout’s participation in the “BRAVE” workshops will fulfill various requirements depending on his rank! Continue reading
