Summer Superheros & Counselor In Training, Bcny
To empower boys and young men by providing effective programs and a supportive community
Throughout the summer, two programs offer teens work and mentorship experience.
Summer Superheros: Teens are trained in literacy and mentorship models, hired by BCNY, and then paired with younger explorer members as literacy guides. Through different superhero themed activities aimed at preventing summer learning loss in reading, teen mentors work with their explorer mentees to complete literacy building activities.
Counselor in Training: The Counselor in Training program utilizes BCNY’s Gardiner School to provide valuable work experience and training to teen members in the field of youth development. In this training program, participants gain leadership and career readiness skills by mentoring younger members and participating in leadership development workshops throughout the summer.
