What happens at a Town Hall Meeting?

This monthly event is a space for anyone who needs it. Together, we practice our bravery, connect with each other, and feel just a little bit more empowered to, you know, be BRAVE!

Bravery Brags

Celebrate and cheer each other on! This is your chance to practice bragging on yourself. (Something we don't often get a chance to do in public!)

Courageous Chats

We'll open up discussion about The School of Bravery's bravery ingredient of the month.

Resonant Shoutouts

Know someone who inspired you to be brave recently?
We want to hear about them!

Community Announcements

A small amount of time is reserved for updates and PSA's related to our School of Bravery Community.

Frequently Asked Questions

What happens at a Town Hall Meeting?

This monthly meeting is a space for anyone who needs it. Together, we practice our bravery, connect with each other, and feel just a little bit more empowered to, you know, be BRAVE! We'll reserve time for bravery brags, courageous topical chats, and shoutouts. The whole thing lasts between 75-90 minutes.

Are Town Hall Meetings online?

Yep! We meet via the Zoom link sent out via email. There are 100 seats available for each meeting. Early birds get the worm!

I'm under 18. Are kids allowed?

We need more kids to brave! Kids are our future! However, this is an 18+ event and unaccompanied minors sadly can't attend. Why? Partly for legal reasons and mostly for freedom of expression reasons. The bravery required in the world is often centered around adult topics or involves language that might offend sensitive ears. If you're under 18, we'd love to have you join us as long as you've got your consenting adult present.

Will you try to sell me something if I attend?

This is not a "secret webinar." Gross. We hate those. That said, because this is a community meeting, there's a short bit of time during each meeting for announcements. Again, the point is to spend time practicing bravery, together!

What if I'm nervous about meeting new people?

We are big believers in 1) creative courage 2) honesty and 3) starting from your strength (aka your comfort zone.) For those nervous about meeting up with strangers online via Zoom, that's completely understandable! Guess what? In our book, participation includes listening and observing. ;-) You can also join the discussion via the chat feature too. 

I'd like to stay anonymous. Is that okay?

Short answer, yes. We completely understand the need to stay incognito. Seasons of bravery put each of us in a variety of different constraints and our community gets it. Even though these meetings are recorded live and eventually go on a YouTube playlist, there are still some fancy-pants tricks for keeping your participation anonymous. Our event reminders contain other best practices for remaining anonymous in Zoom calls.

Are Town Hall Meetings political in nature?

Not necessarily. Some days for some people, and most days for others, it feels like life is political! If you know any of us folx in The School of Bravery then politics are kind of a hard thing to avoid. Regardless, our community believes that bravery can be learned by anyone — regardless of race, color, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, relationship or marital status, citizenship, disability, criminal history, or political views.
