Our Theory of Change
With programming grounded in the Social Cognitive Career Theory and the Expectancy-Value Theory, BridgeYear puts students on a path to economic mobility by providing them with the knowledge, belief, and access required for success.
By partnering with employers, career education programs, and community college programs to connect students to pathways requiring less than a four-year degree, we work to ensure that students’ socioeconomic backgrounds do not limit their financial goals.
