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