BRAVO Youth Orchestras
BRAVO serves diverse populations of students by providing mentorship opportunities and multiple pathways to engage in the arts. Through its programs, BRAVO promotes social justice, provides social/emotional support and boosts academic achievement while supporting the development of creative, confident, community-minded artists.
Bottom Line for Portland
When donating to BRAVO, the entire North Portland community of students and families are positively impacted. Our students demonstrate significantly better school attendance, are twice as likely to pass reading and math assessments, and half as likely to be suspended. In a typical year, BRAVO students participate in multiple performances, both in their own neighborhoods and in the broader Portland Metro Area.
“Teach children the beauty of music, and music will teach them the beauty of life” --Jose Antonio Abreu, founder of El Sistema in Venezuela
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Our ongoing work includes a Racial Equity Training Professional Development series for all staff and curricular components that center student voice and choice. Equity is integrated into the mission and core values of the organization, removing typical barriers to participation so that traditionally marginalized children and families can access music education right in their communities.
