BRYTE Leadership Institute (BLI)
Founded in 2011, BRYTE Summer Camp provides ESL-focused academics and enrichment for 60 refugee youth ages 6-14 in Providence, RI. We are staffed by eight college students and eight high-school aged refugee youth, many of whom are camp alumni. This year, for the first time ever, we are making one of our oldest dreams a reality: a program for our youth who have aged out of camp but are too young to work as junior counselors. We are thrilled to introduce the BRYTE Leadership Institute (BLI), a program for refugee youth ages 13-22 that that focuses on college readiness, social justice education, and arts education. Above all, BLI serves as a leadership training ground, training our next generation of camp leaders so that someday BRYTE Summer Camp is run almost entirely by and for the refugee community.
