BRIDGES helps youth find their voice, experience their power and build diverse relationships in order to create strong lives and make Memphis a better place to live, work and play.
Though we’re all currently observing Mayor Strickland’s Safer at Home Order and working remotely, our Bridge Builders, AmeriCorps service members, Shelby County Youth Council members and staff are still hard at work creating opportunities for youth to reach across, lead the way and build our communities.
UPCOMING (VIRTUAL) EVENTS
BRIDGES is collaborating with Facing History and Ourselves Memphis to create a virtual space where middle and high school-aged youth can build a community of healing and discover their civic agency together.
During this virtual event, youth will learn new methods of identifying and combating everyday and systematic racism, and effective self-healing and self-care practices.
