Building Connections

At Bridges, we create opportunities for meaningful community involvement for our young people, situations that foster interaction with diverse individuals laying a foundation for an active, constructive contribution to society.

Family Involvement

We partner with families to provide children with enriching personal growth experiences and superior education. Together, we can create outstanding individuals and exemplary world citizens. Community service is a concept critical to our program — and parents are important role models. There are many different ways to get involved and easily complete 15 volunteer hours per year.

Community Events

Service Learning

Our rich history of service starts from an early age within the context of the multiage classroom. Each year, every classroom commits to its own new service learning project.
