High School Leadership Program

Mentoring younger students is a great way for high school students to learn about the importance of giving back to others and learn valuable leadership skills.


The BBBS High School Leadership Program (HSLP) is a program that gives High School students the opportunity to mentor younger students at their local elementary schools once a week.

  • Mentors are carefully vetted and receive extensive training and continued support from a BBBS Match Support Specialist to successfully mentor on a one-to-one basis.
  • BBBS provides a professionally developed curriculum that is adapted to the needs and goals of the partnering school.
  • Trained BBBS personnel are present at all HSLP class sessions to provide direction, coaching, and real-time guidance to the mentors and mentees.
  • The elementary students receive personalized attention, in both academic and social/emotional elements, while the mentors receive real life experience, mentoring/classroom management, letters of recommendation, merit cords, and service-learning hours.
