BRIDGES FAQs

IS THE BRIDGES CENTER CLOSED?
BRIDGES has suspended all program activities and events at the BRIDGES Center until further notice. To do our part in preventing the spread of COVID-19, our staff are all working from home and practicing recommended social distancing protocols.

IS BRIDGE BUILDERS CANCELED?
No way! We have suspended our in-person program activities and events until further notice. However, rising 7th-12th graders can apply now to become Bridge Builders and get started with us this June during our very first virtual summer conference.

CAN I BRING MY GROUP FOR OUR SCHEDULED TEAM-BUILDING OR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOP?
All in-person team-building and professional development workshops are suspended until further notice, as we are observing all recommended workplace and public gathering protocols and updating our response in accordance with the most current information from public health experts.

In the meantime, we welcome you to fill out our Needs Assessment Form with information about your group and your goals. Once you submit your form, we’ll get in touch to discuss how Team BRIDGES can help your team climb higher.

CAN I STILL RENT THE BRIDGES FACILITY FOR MY OWN EVENT?
All facility bookings are suspended until further notice, as we are observing all recommended workplace and public gathering protocols and updating our response in accordance with the most current information from public health experts.

Please fill out our Needs Assessment Form to let us know more about your group, organization or event, and we will get in touch as soon as possible to discuss facility rental options as they become available.
