Mission Statement

Bridge Builders Leadership Initiative is a faith-based, teen after school program for students in grades 6 - 12. The purpose of the program is to give students a safe and constructive after school atmosphere designed to promote positive change. The program seeks to go deeper than grades. The goal is to challenge students to look beyond academics and prepare for practical, life situations that happen inside as well as outside of the classroom. The specific objectives and purpose of this organization shall be: to build character and integrity. to improve relational, social, and communication skills. to encourage teamwork and sportsmanship. to develop a community service mentality. to enhance critical thinking and problem-solving abilities.


Bridge Builders is a 501(C)3, Non-Profit Organization designed to teach students the skills they need in order to be effective leaders after they have completed their High School education. Most after school programs stops at 5 th grade and parents are not always able to pay for continued after school care. Bridge Builders hopes to be a solution to parents and our communities by not only continuing to offer this needed program to our communities for free, but to eventually expand from Tuesdays only to daily after school.

Bridge Builders gives students a safe and constructive after school atmosphere that will help develop, grow and shape them into model citizens. Young people’s involvement in such an initiative benefits the students individually, the schools, and the community as a whole. Bridge Builders Leadership Initiative is open to Middle and High School Students - Grades 6-12. The program is held on Tuesdays 3:30-6:00 p.m. at the Pearl Parks and Recreational building. In only our second semester in operation, we have enrolled almost 100 students and are poised to welcome a total of at least150 studentsweekly by the end of the school year !

I love being able to impact the next generation just by volunteering my time only for a very short time period on a Tuesday afternoon that will have a lifelong affect. Building up the next generation.
