WHAT YOUR DONATION WILL DO
Your contribution to our goal of $5,000 will provide a stipend that supports a student’s dream of becoming the first in their family to graduate from college – and the dream is already in action!
BRDG partners with junior-year, 1st generation college students – like Melissa – who are pursuing studies in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) in an unknown environment of higher education that’s filled with rules, regulations and expectations that often feel as if they’ve been set-up to direct them away from successfully achieving their goals.
It can be overwhelming, with each day filled with fearful moments and difficult, conflicting emotion.
But by supporting these students with experienced guidance as to the “rules of the road” for navigating through the norms of college, they prove they can survive and even thrive.
BRDG focuses on transforming these talented, 1st-generation students into successful employees serving the STEM sector.
Your support, now, will help make that life transformation happen.
YOU PROBABLY DIDN’T KNOW …
BRDG provides its own curricula, along with mentoring and coaching, to support the development of our students’ scholastic, social, and even financial acumen – all of which is intentionally directed toward a successful transition into the workplace.
The Spring 2021 semester of our BRDG program will concentrate on “Being a Valuable Employee.”
