OUR NEXT GENERATION OF LEADERS WILL EMERGE FROM EVERYWHERE.
WHAT WE DO
The Braven Accelerator 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, followed by robust campus-based alumni programming. The course is targeted as a part of the sophomore or transfer junior experience. From The Braven Accelerator will come a generation of leaders as diverse as our future demands.
73% Fellows agreed or strongly agreed that Braven greatly increased their chances of getting their desired job after graduation
88% of our leadership coaches would professionally endorse their Fellows to their own networks of friends and colleagues
87% of Fellows are interested in continuing in some way with Braven when they return to campus for the 2015-16 school year
*Our Impact Figures reflect our 2014-2015 school year results.
