Introducing Level Up


Oct 2021


Berkeley Community Scholars is thrilled to announce our new career readiness program, Level Up.

Level Up is a pilot career readiness program developed in partnership with RepresentEd. Scholars will receive a six (6) week professional development training, engage in design thinking and develop essential soft and hard skills through the completion of a “design challenge”— a group project solving an organizational problem relevant to their home communities. Each participant will learn how to leverage their mentors and build professional networks throughout their college career. At the end of the program, scholars will have the opportunity to present their transformational take-aways. 

Level Up consists of 90 – 120 minute sessions and 30 – 60 minutes of homework per session.

Designed to help scholars:

  • Define personal interests
  • Develop leadership skills
  • Build skill sets that improve public speaking, interview skills, teamwork, and social media presence
  • Build effective and efficient resumes, cover letters, and elevator pitches
  • Practice and have comfort with Human Centered Design
  • Leverage mentorship and grow professional connections
Deadline to Apply: November 29, 2021
