Leaders of Tomorrow Program

The Leaders of Tomorrow Program is designed to help disadvantaged Black high school students in the Greater Toronto Area enhance their career opportunities and provides scholarships, career and life skills counseling. The program presently consists of the Leaders of Tomorrow Scholarships and the annual Leaders of Tomorrow: Business and Technology Conference.

Leaders of Tomorrow Scholarships

Four scholarships valued at $2,000.00 each are available exclusively to students from the “high priority neighbourhoods” in the City of Toronto identified by the United Way and the City of Toronto. Students may apply by downloading and completing the BBPA National Scholarships application form. Applicants must satisfy the eligibility requirements stated in the application form and must reside in one of the following neighbourhoods: Crescent Town, Dorset Park, Eglinton East-Kennedy Park, Flemington Park-Victoria Village, Jamestown, Jane & Finch, Lawrence Heights, Malvern, Scarborough Village, Kingston-Galloway, Steeles-L’Amoreaux, Westminster-Branson and Weston-Mt. Denis. To satisfy the selection criteria applicants need only be enrolled in a full-time college or university program and must demonstrate financial need. Recognized contribution to the community is not a pre-requisite for selection for these scholarships but would be an asset.

Leaders of Tomorrow Conference

This annual two-day conference educates high school students who intend to pursue post-secondary education on what it takes to be successful in a business environment. The conference provides information on careers in the business and technology fields.

Students are coached in workshops on topics such as: Interviewing Skills, Business Etiquette and Professional Conduct, Career Management, Navigating the Education System, Money Management, Entrepreneurship – How to Start a Business, Training and Education for the Skilled Trades and The Importance of Volunteering.

Over two hundred students attend the conference annually and have the opportunity to network with Black and other executives from the banking, insurance, engineering, accounting and technology fields as well as University representatives.
