BridgeYear programs create life changing opportunities for underserved youth who are looking for non-four year degree pathways after high school. These programs have received great feedback and we continue to track real progress towards achieving our mission.
From the Mouths of our Teachers and Students
BridgeYear works to give all students, not just the top performers, the resources they need to have a successful future. Through hands-on career simulations at our Career Test Drive® Fairs, we strive to inspire students to consider career options they may not have known about.
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 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.
