What is ourBRIDGE for KIDS?

ourBRIDGE for Kids is a nonprofit organization that supports the immigrant and refugee community in Charlotte, NC by providing an out of school program and through community-based initiatives.

 

Our Mission: ourBRIDGE fosters the education, acculturation, and resilience of newly arrived and first generation children and their families.

 

Our Vision: We envision a city where every newly arrived and first-generation American child has the same opportunities to live a happy and fulfilling childhood.
Out-Of-School Programs

We shifted from a 3 hour afterschool program to a full-day remote learning center for 100 English Language Learning (ELL) students in East Charlotte, to ensure students have access to an equitable and enriching learning experience during the pandemic.

Our Program
Community-based Programs

Since opening our doors, we have worked tirelessly to build meaningful, authentic relationships and partnerships with our neighbors. Because of that trust in the community, we have been able to offer programs and events that truly center the needs of our immigrant and refugee community.

“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.”
