The Bridge Youth and Family Services


Be a friend, teacher, caring listener, coach and role model for a child between the ages of 7 and 15. The Bridge provides screening, training and all the support you'll need to help a child grow socially and emotionally. Must be able to pass a DCFS background check, have a valid driver's license, reliable vehicle, and clean driving record. A one-year commitment to the program is required.

***Covid19 Update: We are currently not holding in-person activities and therefore not assigning new one-on-one pairings, so new volunteer participation is limited.
