A Path to Impact
In 2013, CEO & Founder Aimée Eubanks Davis launched Braven, having identified the education-to-employment gap faced by some of our most promising young leaders.
During our first two years we piloted several programs in both the K-12 and higher education spaces. We had great success with college students, and decided that we should focus our programming on solving the education-to-employment gap in higher education. With a clear vision of impact we:
- Launched our current college program in 2014 with our founding university partner San José State University.
- Brought Braven to the East Coast in 2015 with a partnership with Rutgers University-Newark, the most diverse college in the United States.
- Will now reach more than 1000 Fellows this school year and bring Braven to our founder’s hometown of Chicago in a unique partnership with National Louis University.
