B2L BELIEVES IN THE P.O.W.E.R OF COMMUNITY AND FOR US, P.O.W.E.R MEANS

 

PROSPERITY. OPPORTUNITY. WELLNESS. EMPOWERMENT. RESILIENCE

 

During this two day experience we will provide an opportunity for youth and their families to engage with professionals from the healthcare industry while learning how to navigate the system, gain employment opportunities, and uplift their voices to achieve true healthcare equity.

 

Experiences include:

 

Day-1: This day will be focused on youth preferably in grades 10-12. Our partners will connect with professionals and healthcare providers in their organizations and networks to engage youth in topics and hands on experiences related to:

 

  • Mental Health and Wellness

  • Pathways to becoming a healthcare professional

  • The impact of self-care and spiritual maintenance

  • The benefits of culturally relevant therapy

  • Hands on work with Suture Kits, Blood Pressure Cuffs, and Much More

  • Live listening sessions around youth’s experience in healthcare

 

Day-2: We invite youth and  their families to come and engage with employers and pre-apprentice and apprenticeship programs in the industry or healthcare.
