Company Information

Only 30% of the 1.3 million low-income or first-generation college students enrolled each year graduate and secure a strong first job or enter graduate school. That’s more than 900,000 students every single year who aren't on the path to the American Dream. Now, with the pandemic, the number of students whose dreams have been deferred is even greater.

The mission of Braven is to empower promising, underrepresented young people—first-generation college students, students from low-income backgrounds, and students of color—with the skills, confidence, experiences and networks necessary to transition from college to strong first jobs, which lead to meaningful careers and lives of impact.

By partnering with four-year colleges and universities who are working to innovate, Braven:
  • Builds cutting-edge career education into the undergraduate experience for low-income and first-generation college students
  • Provides students, who often feel disconnected from campus, with a network of supporters and sense of belonging
  • Becomes a systemic solution within and across universities to fuel a generation of leaders as diverse as our future demands
