The Bridge Builders Leadership Council is a group of dedicated, hardworking, and creative youth leaders who make change in the Greater Memphis community.
The Bridge Builders® COLLABORATE Leadership Council is a group of dedicated, hard-working 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 three times a month on Sundays from 3-5pm but this commitment requires participation outside of scheduled meeting time! Students participate in:
- Large Scale events at BRIDGES
- Facilitation of Spring/Fall Training
- Thank-a-thon (thank you’s to our donors!)
- Parent Orientation
- 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 7-12th 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.
