The Black Student Summer Leadership Program provides one-of-kind experiential learning opportunities to secondary students and introduces them to a variety of professional pathways. Students receive mentorship and training and are paired with a for-profit or not-for-profit organization that matches their area of passion. This program supports students in their development of social and professional networks, transferable skills and in the long-term aims to support the increase of the number of individuals identifying as Black in careers in which they may be underrepresented. Students enrolled in the Black Student Summer Leadership Program are paid for their contributions.
Registration for this program is open until January 19. Register here or at bit.ly/bsslp24
