Our Developing Future Leaders Mentorship Program is a year-long mentorship program for second semester college freshmen to graduating college seniors.

Once a month, students will meet for a designated professional development session. There are 10 personal and professional development topics that are facilitated through interactive workshops that promote the growth and development of each student in the program. These workshops are administered by company sponsors who provide speakers, or through the BLF Foundation. Open discussion is encouraged as different viewpoints can help students understand various ways to solve situations. During the mentorship program year, a portfolio of accomplishments is developed through student capstone projects, so that each student will be able to effectively market themselves to future employers and other opportunities.

In addition to the monthly meetings, each student is matched with a working professional mentor. There will be designated activities for the students and mentors, but also mentors may arrange their own activities. During the course of the mentorship program year, mentors and students will complete a service project.
