Although Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Ball tour was postponed in February due to an extensive injury, The Born This Way Foundation (BTWF) has announced that the Born Brave Bus is headed back on the road to embark on a four-city tour beginning March 16th.

The experience provides youth with an interactive way to meet like-minded peers, and to connect with local resources in their communities including behavioral and mental health services, school psychologists, mentoring, volunteer opportunities and bullying and suicide prevention resources. While counseling will not be provided on site, youth will be directed to local professionals who can provide services to them on an individual basis.

The Born Brave Bus Tour will be visiting the four cities throughout March with the goal of bringing it to more cities in the future. Tour dates, cites, and locations are listed below and more specific details will be announced shortly at www.bornthiswayfoundation.org.

-    Saturday, March 16: Philadelphia, PA, Art Museum Front Steps; 3pm-7pm
-    Tuesday, March 19: Washington, D.C., The National Mall; 1pm-7pm
-    Saturday and Sunday, March 23 and 24: New York City, Times Square (Between 46th and 47th Streets); Saturday, 3pm-7pm & Sunday, 12pm-6pm
-    Wednesday, March 27: Chicago, IL, Gateway Park at Navy Pier; 12pm-6pm

For the Born Brave Bus tour, BTWF has joined forces with Campus Pride, GLSEN, Hive & YOUMedia, the National Association of School Psychologists, the National Council for Behavioral Health, MENTOR, Mentoring USA, The Trevor Project and YSA (Youth Service America). All across the country YMCAs have been invited to join in the movement.
