Roses in Concrete
Roses in Concrete is a Leadership & Mentorship Program for Black, Latinx, Asian and Indigenous college and Waltham high School students and supporters. The program fosters educational, leadership, mentorship, and professional development opportunities.
Roses in Concrete empowers students to network and form connections with Black, Latinx, Asian and Indigenous professionals in the area, have access to a safe environment to seek advice on the systemic challenges they will experience on their path to career exploration, and discover professional development strategies to encourage self-advocacy in the classroom and beyond. The program will include workshops, retreats, online and in-person mentor and mentee meetings, and will create a space for dialogue, growth, and community.
