Brave Enough To Fail


A student-focused educational nonprofit that provides free motivational presentations, scholarships, and resources to high schools.

Our mission is to cultivate a new generation of leaders, creators, and achievers by narrowing the achievement gap between poor and minority students and their more affluent peers through inspiring young people in those underserved groups with the courage to pursue their dreams. 

Being brave enough to risk failure is a NON NEGOTIABLE REQUIREMENT for success in any venture.

“I’ll feel more confident in wanting to pursue my career and not let others ideas or thoughts distract me from achieving my success!

Our children's  dreams are the future of America

Over 10,00 Students Served
