Building Bridges through Leadership Training Junior (BBLTJ) is a month-long program designed for secondary school students in grades 6 to 10. The program, adapted to suit the learning needs of students aged between 12 and 16, focuses on sensitizing a younger audience to the values of leadership, teamwork, community service, and active citizenship. The program specifically targets students enrolled in class 6 to 10 to instill positive values from a young age, so that lessons of leadership and building bridges remain influential throughout their lives.
Young people from the three divergent educational systems are united with the intent of challenging the divisiveness perpetuated by the existing structure.
Participants develop diagnostic and problem-solving skills through large class discussions and small group case analyses. Additionally, public speaking workshops enable them to strengthen their communication skills.
Leadership in Action
Participants apply their skills and knowledge by engaging with underserved communities through innovative service projects.
