Celebrating the BTE Story: 25 Individual Lessons

Through focus groups with global BTE leaders, interviews with community partners from current and past BTE programs, and review of evaluation data, we’ve arrived at 25 lessons that distill BTE’s 25 years of experience into words of wisdom from those who have been there and done the work.

This toolkit consists of the 25 lessons broken down on individual, printable pages.
