Senior Boot Camp (12th Grade)

Be A Leader’s Senior Boot Camp (SBC) program provides critical and timely support, encouragement and guidance to seniors as they continue to shape and plan their college going experience.

2016 Senior Boot Camp Success 

“After nearly four years with Be A Leader, I can proudly say that this is the only program that has sufficiently prepared me for college. By supporting me through the college application process and by providing the mentorship I needed throughout the years, I was given the confidence to believe that I could go to college and become the first in my family to do so.”
