Programmatic Volunteer: After School + Summer Programs and Clubs

Work directly with ourBRIDGE kids staff during our afterschool and summer programs by providing classroom or reading support. Programmatic Volunteers commit to spending at least two hours a week over the course of 10 weeks.  

Are you an artist, dancer, or chef? We’re always looking for individuals who want to share their talents with the BRIDGE kids through facilitating our Club Days during the school year.

Community Engagement: Collection Drives and Events

From hanging posters around the community, picking up food for a community event, to collecting coats for our Winter Party, there are many ways to support ourBRIDGE outside of our afterschool program.
