BHGH Director of Programs

From the desk of our Director of Programs.

In the most recent Salesforce Connected Student Report, it was revealed that only 11 percent of college graduates felt prepared to enter the workforce. A key section of the BHGH mission is to work with our scholars and their families to guide them into truly becoming career-ready men and women for others. This is accomplished by leading programming focused on helping youth in their professional development and increasing their employability. 

In today’s world, it’s integral to develop work-life skills. To be competitive in the workforce one must have opportunities to integrate work experiences early to complement your academic preparation. In our programs we make sure to guide our scholars to develop WorkLife skills by helping them find experiences like shadowing, internships, mentorships. Our case managers provide advice on the preparation and updating of resumes, thank you letters, cover letters and application documents for internships or postgraduate studies. In our programing we make sure to include mock interviews, and overall job interview preparation to make sure our BHGH scholars and Collegians stand out in any applicant pool and are ready and feel confident to enter the workforce.
