BRIDGES building leaders

BRIDGES has been working with young people in Memphis for 90 years. Today BRIDGES, with its Bridge Builders program, inspires thousands of diverse youth from different socio-economic backgrounds throughout the Mid-South each year, helping them to appreciate differences, strengthening leadership and individuality and encouraging them to work for change in their communities. They are empowered to reach across, lead the way and build our community. 

The Commercial Appeal is regularly featuring some amazing Bridge Builders, and they're sure to inspire you. Read about Justice Franklin, a Whitehaven High School senior who has truly been transformed.
