ourBRIDGE is a not-for-profit 501(c3) organization that supports the refugee and immigrant communities by offering a one-of-a-kind enrichment program for newly arrived and 1st generation American children.
We advocate for the success, happiness and fair treatment of their families as they acculturate to the United States.
ourBRIDGE for KIDS (ourBRIDGE) focuses on children of immigrant and refugee families, helping them achieve academic success and integration into the community through innovative instructional methods and an embracement of their cultural diversity.
So far, we have welcomed to our center families and staff from at least 40 different cultures. At our center, children learn to become better students and celebrate each other’s culture while being encouraged to show pride in who they are and where they come from. We also want to teach adults the same values.
“ourBRIDGE is the best afterschool program my daughter could attend. They support her academically and personally. Everybody is very friendly, and I have the peace of mind of her being in a safe place.”
“…He became more assimilated into the culture here, and we give a huge amount of credit to the staff of ourBRIDGE.”
