Bridge

For Community College Students

Get lifelong mentors. Discover possibilities. Build your community.

The Program

Bridge is a mentorship program for self-identifying women, non-binary and gender non-conforming individuals. The program takes place over an entire academic year (Sept. - May.), working not only to build a bridge between students and their future professional field, but giving the students the tools, experience and encouragement they need to cross it.

Students will be challenged to step out of their comfort zone and seize new opportunities.

Students will be equipped with essential professional and leadership tools and given the opportunity to use them in practice.

Students will be connected with peers, mentors & working professionals to grow their personal and professional network.
