GENaustin's BigBrave | Girls Empowerment Network

Big Brave team members are challenged to accomplish one goal on their “bucket list.”


By taking on their challenge, the Big Brave team will serve as a positive example for teen girls. Team members seek to serve as role models for bravery and goal setting, to inspire girls to find their voices, and show them anything is possible!


The team has 5 weeks to complete their individual fundraising goals of $5,000. And 100% of all funds raised will go towards GENaustin scholarships.

Support the Big Brave team and donate!

Learn something new. Do something you’ve never done. Go where you’ve never gone. The Big Brave.
