Local Company Steps In To Inspire Students

Pro Property Management of Brookfield has stepped forward as the first local business to sponsor Brave Enough To Fail’s Boss Academy. 

The 12-week course is now being provided to students at Faith Preparatory School in New Milford. 

Adrianne Angel, co-owner of Pro Property Management says,

“As a small family owned company, Pro Property Management enjoys the opportunity to support  multiple community based programs .  When we heard about the Brave Enough to Fail program we immediately knew it aligned perfectly with our passion for giving back.   Muhammad Ali said it best, “Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth.” We look forward to partnering with the Boss Academy so together we can help future generations achieve their dreams.”

Brave Enough To Fail’s Boss Academy equips students with practical and actionable tools, including goal-setting, strategic planning, and effective communication to achieve success in school and beyond. 

Boss Academy also helps students develop in the five SEL core areas of self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making. 

Brave Enough To Fail’s mission is to close the achievement gap between lower-income students and their more affluent peers by cultivating a new generation of leaders creators, and achievers.
