Program areas at Braven

Braven supports untapped students from college to career by partnering with institutions of higher ed and employers to offer a two-part experience that begins with a credit-bearing college course followed by a post-course experience that lasts through graduation. Fellows emerge from Braven with the skills, confidence, experiences and networks they need to land a strong first job and get on a path to economic freedom.braven also delivers bravenx, a stipend-based program outside of institutes of higher ed, with the goal of extending the critical work of college success organizations and charter high schools into strong career outcomes after college. By partnering with such organizations, Braven helps ensure that their alumni not only graduate, enroll and persist in college, but also build the foundation for a lifelong career path. Bravenx is identical in content and cohort structure as our core product, the higher ed model. In lieu of academic credit, bravenx fellows earn a financial stipend upon completion of the program.
