We envision an American Dream Team – 100,000 leaders-in-the-making prepared to thrive in high-impact roles after college graduation. In this future, being from a low-income bracket, a certain race, the first in your family to go to college, etc. no longer determines access to economic opportunity. Young leaders will have the runway required to live lives of mobility and impact, wherever their stories begin.
Life is a startup. It takes individual courage and ingenuity but it also requires a community of believers. That’s why our Fellows and Leadership Coaches believe in pulling as they climb. Emboldened by their own Braven experience, they pay it forward to the next generation.
In partnership with colleges, universities, committed employers, and partner organizations, we will work toward our theory of action by contributing to, enhancing, and activating investments they are making in underrepresented young people.
