CLOSED for 2022-2023 academic year through August 18, 2022.
The Bridge Builders Leadership Council is a group of dedicated, hardworking and creative youth leaders who work directly within the COLLABORATE level of programming. Members of BBCLC play a vital role in internal program development, serving as student recruiters, student facilitators, and event planners throughout the year. They work as a team with BRIDGES staff to assist in efforts to strengthen and represent youth voice.
The BBCLC meets twice a month, on Tuesdays from 4:30-7 p.m. either virtually or in person; but this commitment also requires participation outside of scheduled meeting time! Students participate in:
- Large-scale events at BRIDGES
- Facilitation of spring/fall training
- Team building
- Thank-a-thons (thank you calls to our donors)
- Parent orientations
- Bridge Builders congratulatory phone calls
- Planning an elective for COLLABORATE students
What makes a strong candidate?
Students who are interested in serving on the council must be a current 7th-12th grader in the Bridge Builders COLLABORATE program level, be hardworking, reliable, and have a passion for Bridge Builders! Students should have a desire to increase their leadership skills and work well on a team. The Council participates in various activities throughout the school year at BRIDGES, so students should be prepared to be flexible.
