Happy Giving Tuesday! For those of you who are not aware of what Giving Tuesday is, Giving Tuesday connects diverse groups of individuals, communities and organizations around the world for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving.
We’ve participated in Giving Tuesday for the past two years and have been able to do great things through our non profit based on the donations received. This year we are grateful to be able to celebrate our resilience and participate for year three.
Why BRIDGE Inc was Created?
During my matriculation through the Tift County School system, I benefited from an outstanding village that consistently poured into me. The consistent efforts of my village positioned me to build confidence in myself, instigated an unyielding sense of curiosity and created an awareness of the wealth of potential that the world had to offer. Since leaving Tifton, I’ve frequently thought about how I can play a similar role in the lives of the kids that currently live there. Three years ago I started down the path of exploring and understanding the ends and outs of the nonprofit space. In June of 2018 BRIDGE Inc was founded to help at risk youth in Tifton, Ga.
Overview of BRIDGE Inc.
The BRIDGE organization envisions a world where all youth are equipped with the necessary life skills required to appreciate the power that is harnessed in their uniqueness, consistently visualize their potential and resiliently pursue their dreams. Our BRIDGE Youth program was created for at risk teens in Tifton, Georgia and is anchored around providing activities that empower the engaged youth and equip them with key life skills to effectively navigate challenges and evolution. The programs are offered throughout the year and focus on self-awareness, self-respect, respecting others, leadership, team building and goal planning.
