Be A Leader Institute – High School (BLIH) is a program for high school students that provide monthly workshops to help them build a college-going mentality and teach them critical academic test taking skills that are necessary to become prepared for college requirements including entrance exams. The Be A Leader Foundation’s (BALF) goal is to increase their interest in and awareness of college by teaching a university focused curriculum. BALF will continue to work directly with these individuals to develop a network of college bound students through each of the campus Be A Leader Clubs. BLIH’s primary goal is to get high school students college bound, focused and prepared. We will achieve this goal by providing a positive learning environment and a college-focused mentality for each participant to develop their educational 4 plus 4 plan. Our primary objective is to continue to prepare college bound students through active participation in our monthly BLIH workshops and Be A Leader High School Clubs including the support by our Be A Leader Parent Club. BLIH welcomes all high school students to attend our monthly program workshops without the need to apply to the program.
