The Be A Leader Institute Elementary (BLIE) was established in 2006 for 7th graders in the Roosevelt School District (RSD). The purpose of BLIE is to create a positive environment and nurturing community through its college-focused curriculum. This 8-workshop program coinciding with the academic year provides participants with the tools, resources and encouragement necessary to begin exploring a college career. Mentorship from college students and professionals is also part of the student’s journey within BLIE. The program is currently only available for students in the Roosevelt School District, but BALF’s goal is to implement the BLIE program into additional inner-city elementary school districts.
