The mission of the school is to break the cycle of poverty through education, employing a rigorous, well-rounded program with an extended school day, summer leadership camp and graduate support. The intern teaching program at BJP offers young, talented people the opportunity to teach as a means of giving back and exploring education as a possible career track through the mentoring and guidance of master teachers.
