Books of Bravery

Blattman Elementary students and staff with members of Project Brave

The Books of Bravery library is a great way to incorporate Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) programming into your community. Each book has been carefully curated by members of the Project Brave program development team and include helpful questions for engaging children in meaningful conversations about empathy, courage, kindness, and many other important relationship skills.

Currently we are donating the entire library of 20 books, along with a sturdy, wire display, to area schools in San Antonio and neighboring communities.

For a $350 contribution to Project Brave, you can personally sponsor a library to a location of your choosing. This can be a school, office, daycare, waiting room, or any setting where children would be able to interact with the books.

Please contact Program Coordinator, Megan Gipson, for more information on how to bring the Books of Bravery library to your school or office via this form:
