.

CircEsteem mentors over 250 diverse youth each week in 21 Chicago neighborhoods, helping them to build personal development and leadership skills, such as self-esteem and teamwork, through the training and performance of circus arts utilizing a social circus approach. Social circus is a powerful catalyst for creating social change because it helps marginalized individuals assume their place within a community and enrich that community with their talents. The group of six students participating in Brave Kids represent CircEsteem's diverse community.
