What is ourBRIDGE for KIDS?

ourBRIDGE is the only non-faith based 501(c)(3) organization in Charlotte and the region,  that supports the refugee and immigrant communities by offering a one-of-a-kind enrichment program for newly arrived and first-generation American children.

We focus on the children’s English acquisition and improvement of the English language, their socio-emotional well-being and the awareness and appreciation of their own cultures and other’s.

 

Out-Of-School Programs

Experiential learning opportunities with minimal worksheets! Our curriculum is STEAM based, hands-on, filled with field trips and activities to learn English creating awesome memories.

Our Program

Raising awareness by educating our community. Building bridges for interactions between American-born neighbors and newly-arrived families to learn from each other.

Our Vision

We strive to foster a sense of diversity, integration, peace, respect, and love for all cultures and beliefs among the residents in our community.

Global Family

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.
