Part of what makes the BPP model of education so unique is our focus on interest-based, Real World Learning. We want students to find and walk their own pathway to post-secondary success and that means providing them with the skills, tools, and network they need to do so.
Along with their core classes, students work with their Advisor (teacher) and a mentor to develop a self-designed project and present it as part of an end-of-term exhibition of learning. That's where you come in.
Mentors don't just help students prepare for the workforce, but help young people build positive relationships and grow their self-confidence. Our mentors are an important part of the BPP community--we appreciate our mentors just as much as our students appreciate you!
What do mentors do?
Beginning level students are introduced to a variety of different careers and career pathways by shadowing professionals at their work site, attending virtual and in-person industry-specific workshops, and, after mastering professional competencies, advancing to a two-day per week internship of their choosing.
