Bridge: Preparing For The Next Step


Learning & volunteering in the community


Helping in the school kitchen

The Bridge program was designed to help post-high school students prepare for independent living and career interests.  The students experience things like planning a budget, going to the store, and preparing food in a kitchen.  They have opportunities to learn to do hands-on tasks like gardening, painting, and sorting.  They also visit businesses to grasp the types of jobs that make them run.  They work on compiling a resume and have mock job interviews.  


This leads to volunteer opportunities and job site visits and where they are immersed in a work environment for which they have expressed an interest.  All of this helps Hope's Bridge program students prepare for life after they graduate.
