Braven empowers promising underrepresented young people -- first-generation college students, students on Pell grants and/or from low-income communities, and students of color -- on their path to college graduation and strong first jobs, which lead to meaningful careers and lives of impact.
Braven empowers promising young people on their path to college graduation and strong first jobs. We believe that our next generation of leaders will emerge from everywhere, so we take a particular interest in ensuring our talent network is filled with people from underrepresented backgrounds. To do so, Braven partners with educational institutions, volunteer professionals, and employers to offer a rigorous and relevant career readiness course, that is followed by robust campus-based alumni programming. The course is targeted as a part of the sophomore or transfer junior experience.
The Braven Accelerator is a rigorous course that builds Fellows’ leadership mindsets and confidence while they build, practice, and apply hard and soft skills. Fellows, with the guidance of their volunteer Leadership Coach and cohort of 5-7 peers, build a personalized roadmap towards success and the self-motivation to realize their vision. After the course, Fellows receive specialized engagements, such as networking events and connections to career-accelerating experiences, through which they continue to build a strong network and access critical information and experiences to support their career trajectory.
