Who we are
BHPC provides safe spaces for youth to consult, discuss and explore options for their lives through counseling, mentorship, and coaching. Staff and volunteers ensure that an environment that is fun filled but aimed at empowerment is created for the youth through symposia, arts and drama, film shows, and group activities that promote socialization encourage team building, and enable self-expression.
