The Centre of Excellence for Black Student Achievement will be hosting an information session for self-identifying Black students who might be interested in the Black Student Summer Leadership Program (BSSLP). This program is led by TDSB’s Graduation Coach for Black Students program.
The BSSLP provides experiential learning opportunities for self-identifying Black students through collaborations with post-secondary institutions, community educators and corporate partners. Students are mentored and are matched with community organizations who provide students with meaningful learning opportunities which support students’ pursuit of various academic and career pathways.
The 2022 BSSLP engages Black students for seven weeks (July 4, 2022 – August 19, 2022) to enhance their leadership, build transferable skills through a paid experience. Last summer we had over 85 students engaging in this opportunity in collaboration with Continuing Education -Focus on Youth Toronto and TDSB Research Department.
The information session will be on Tuesday February 22, 2022 from 5-6 pm. Registration information can be found on the flyer below.
