In the meantime, hear from our students how BHLP made a positive impact in their lives: on their career readiness, friendships and leadership skills.

“BHLP really gave me the foundation to see what a leader is, how to apply it in a school setting, how to apply it in a more global-level setting and also how to advise others.”
