New Experiences for BraveHearts
Expressions of a BraveHeart is a comprehensive fine arts program offering music, art, and dance to youth and young adults (ages 11-21) with special needs, primarily those with moderate to severe disabilities. Also known as “BraveHearts,” the program was founded in 2010 by social work professor and parent of a special needs child, professor Angie Burque.
On Tiger Giving Day, we are raising money so we can offer new, engaging experiences for our participants. The funding will also allow us to offer Auburn students an enriched experience that will enable them to effectively interact in future professional and personal settings.
More than 350 Auburn University students from a variety of majors, including social work, psychology, pharmacy, biomedical sciences, education, engineering, and forestry have volunteered with BraveHearts. Students who volunteer with BraveHearts are provided an opportunity to integrate classroom knowledge with practical experience that allows them to embody a spirit that is not afraid.
