The North Baton Rouge Youth Development Program (NBR) is UREC’s signature summer youth initiative that provides high school students with professional workplace opportunities that are closely aligned to their career aspirations. NBR also provides college readiness, academic enhancement and exploration in STEAM based opportunities. Ten NBR fellows will participate in this year’s program, which will begin on July 6, 2015. UREC has sponsored NBR for the past 21 years through successful partnerships with ExxonMobil and the Huey and Angelina Wilson Foundation.
