BDEA 2.0 was started in 2018 after identifying that many of our Black and Latino young men were disproportionately falling off in attendance and not progressing through their classes.

The program focuses on project-based learning with required internships, a self-directed pathway-based model towards post-secondary education, a trade or technology.

This program was designed in partnership with our students and is best matched with young adults ages 16-18 who need a smaller, hands-on environment in which to learn with close connection to mentoring adults.
