Although you will have time during each session to reconnect with your team, time will be required outside of the sessions to complete the projects. The amount of time required depends on your topic and focus area. Participants may spend up to 30 additional hours working on their project outside the provided class time.
Each session will require a full day out of the office. We strongly discourage participants from leaving a session early or coming late to avoid disrupting presentations and activities. This allows every participant to get the most out of their BRLI experience.
The majority of the sessions are spent at one location. However, if we are traveling between multiple locations, the participant is responsible for transportation to the different locations.
Although we strongly encourage you to attend, it is not a required component of the program. The socials give you the opportunity to network with over 250 graduates that make up our alumni base.
There are plenty of opportunities to stay involved after your BRLI experience is over. BRLI is made up of several committees including the project team committee, curriculum committee, and Alumni Association – all of which are always looking for help. By volunteering, you can help shape the future of the program and also get to know your fellow alumni. To learn how, see the volunteer opportunities page on this website.
