The Bridge exists to connect today’s youth to a thriving future
We envision a world where today’s youth feel empowered and equipped to impact the world around them as they boldly pursue their God-given potential. In our efforts to realize that vision, we believe that mentorship and the transformative power of relationships are key. The impact of mentorship is endless.According to The National Mentoring Partnership, youth who were mentored are…
55% more likely to be enrolled in college
78% more likely to volunteer regularly
90% more likely to become a mentor
130% more likely to hold leadership positions
Yet, 1 in 3 youth will grow up without a mentor. With North Lauderdale having the largest concentration of youth in Broward, there exists a great opportunity to serve as a bridge for the youth of our community in this pivotal age.
