About BBLC

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 Leadership Council is a group of COLLABORATE level Bridge Builders from 7th-12th grade. COLLABORATE students have the opportunity to apply for a seat on the council. Members of the Bridge Builders Leadership Council work with BRIDGES staff, community leaders, and other youth to gather information, educate others, build commitment, promote BRIDGES, and serve as a youth voice on key issues. Members work as both student ambassadors and event planners. Every year, Leadership Council members are responsible for:

    • Public speaking: serve as a student ambassador at BRIDGES, your school, and community events
    • Student recruitment: create and implement recruitment strategies for your school
    • Social media guru: develop marketing and social media tactics that help us reach more students
    • Facilitate: work monthly trainings with other Bridge Builders
    • Curriculum development: plan and facilitate conversations on “hot topics”
    • Meeting for at least six hours every month
