Closing the opportunity gap demands hard work and dedication not only from scholars, but also a commitment from adults to eliminate barriers and grow new generations of college graduates, career professionals, and community leaders. Our community partners are committed and dedicated to ensure the success of every scholar. Each community partner focuses on one of the core components of the program: academic enrichment, counseling, leadership development, and mentorship.


The BRIDGES Experience

The BRIDGES experience cultivates leadership development, civil engagement, and team building- equipping scholars with an array of skills necessary to navigate and become successful in high school, college, and future career. Through a series of leadership and diversity trainings, community action projects, and social justice seminars, scholars are better prepared to initiate and lead social changes, to collaborate and work with individuals of intersectional identities, and to make a lasting impact on their community.
