The foundation’s College Outreach Program focuses on Educating, Engaging & Empowering young women on college campuses by providing FREE educational resources and peer-to-peer programming to them. Since the program began in 2012, our program has worked with nearly 500 campuses across the country.
Materials & Kits
Target Audience: Health Center & Women's Center Directors
This component provides campuses free educational materials for use in various ways on campus. We currently offer two types of kits:
1) Poster/Post Card Kits: These print materials include information about what to look for when "feeling your boobies". The kit includes 2 large posters and 100 post cards.
2) Bulletin Board Kits: This kit is a downloadable zip file with multiple printable resources for use in creating an educational bulletin board focused on breast cancer facts & breast health.

Bras Across Campus®
Feel Your Boobies® Day
Target Audience: Greek Life, Community Engagement, Athletics, Student Activities
The goal of Bras Across Campus® is to provide students with the leadership experience of executing a health promotion event on campus focused on proactive breast health.
Through Bras Across Campus®, students become the message spreaders by reminding other students (in person and through social media) to "feel their boobies".
PILOTING IN FALL 2018!
Target Audience: Peer Health Educators, Student Nursing Organizations, Res Life
The goal of Feel Your Boobies® Day is to provide a structured and educational tabling model for student organizations. By leveraging mobile platforms, students can complete a “self-check”, watch videos, and post a “selfie” on social media to share the “feel your boobies®” reminder with others.
