Mission Statement

SportsBridge's mission is to empower girls through sports and leadership.

Description

SportsBridge programs help girls, ages 11-18, acquire the self-esteem and life skills necessary to navigate successfully through adolescence. Founded in San Francisco in 1995, the SportsBridge Athlete Mentor Program is a national model for the development of both academic and athletic leadership in girls. The program promotes intergenerational friendship, successful achievement of goals and heightened self-confidence, pairing middle school girls from underresourced communities with volunteer adult women athletes for a year of structured one-on-one and group activities using sports as their focus. SportsBridge encourages academic and athletic achievement for girls of varying abilities while providing a safe and fun environment for them to develop and grow. Surrounded by talented female mentors, girls are encouraged to reach for their dreams.
