This committee organizes several short term projects for BLSA members to participate in during the academic year.Â Past efforts have been: School Supply Drive for those displaced by Hurricane Katrina, Habitat for Humanity, Soup Kitchens, and Big Brother/Big Sister of Greater St. Louis.
Beaumont High School College Preparatory Program â€“ BLSA has teamed up with Beaumont High School in an effort to get more students at this school into post secondary programs. BLSA members meet at Beaumont bimonthly to advise students on the steps necessary to get to college and answer the many questions students may have about college. Each session differs (studying for and taking college entrance exams, finding the perfect college for you, getting fee waivers, financial aide, etc.) and Beaumont students are walked through the college application process. BLSA members are also paired up with high school seniors and keep in contact with them throughout the December break to ensure that students are completing their college entrance checklist.
