The initiative will run across several cities on its own in the wake of Gaga's recent hip injury.
Lady Gaga's tour maybe have been forced to end early but the 'You & I' singer has announced plans to have her Born Brave bus head back out on the road without her.
The US star launched her Brave Bus initiative earlier this year to run alongside her North American 'Born This Way Ball' world tour, with the initiative following her across the country to provide a place for young people to discuss their issues and problems and meet like-minded peers.
Gaga was forced to cancel the remainder of her tour back in February in order to undergo surgery to repair a tear on her hip, but has now announced plans for the Born Brave bus to head out on a four-city tour of North America on its own.
"Although my daughter is recovering and not able to complete the tour, it is important to her that the Born Brave Bus lives on," Gaga's mother Cynthia Germanotta said in a statement about the tour. "The bus has already impacted thousands of young people, and with the support of our partner organisations this incredible resource will help to guide the large youth populations of Philadelphia, Washington DC, New York City and Chicago towards local support in their communities."

The Born Brave initiative will call at Philadelphia, Washington, New York City and Chicago starting from 16th March, with a view to extending the tour to more cities if demand is high enough.
Lady Gaga is also rumoured to be considering a summer wedding with boyfriend Taylor Kinney now that the two have a more open schedule for the year.
