In the Berkshires, we are committed to the success of the next generation of learners and leaders. Berkshire County has a variety of different types of educational institutions. With options for both public and private schools ranging from early-childhood education to higher education, each of the Berkshires’ 32 communities offer diverse learning opportunities for residents and beyond.
BLP was established in 1997 to seek, prepare, and sustain leaders for our region. This program is ideal for individuals seeking advancement in their career or to broaden their network of personal and professional contacts; it also works well as an introduction to the region for any new arrivals to the Berkshires.
YLP program was launched in January 2010 and developed for high school juniors as a year-long program providing a detailed introduction to the business community in the region, with the assistance of both teachers and local business leaders.
