"Bravo! To all those who help us and to all those that we help"



We are a non-profit (501 c 3) charity organization based in Michigan.

When a foster youth turns 18, they are considered "aged-out" of the system. Some of these young men and women leave their homes with only the clothes on their backs.

Bravo Programs of America is working to get resources to these young adults, ages 18-24, to help them attend college or a trade school primarily through scholarships. ​​ It is our mission to ensure that all foster youth who seek the opportunity, are able to complete a high quality, affordable post secondary education that leads to a sustaining career.
