We'll take ownership!

We pledge to:

  • Create and support a college-going culture.
  • Prepare Students for success in college, career, citizenship, and life.
  • Increase educational persistence, performance, and progress.

Project Description:

Our Youth Development Program is an educationally based, out of school time program for 1st-12th graders. Our Summer Program provides activities to help avoid the summer learning dip. We are a founding partner of LUCA with Steve Grissom. We welcome opportunities to gain support from others to help our program strengthen our "college going culture." We have a Child Development Center that is countering the statistic that Portland preschoolers start kindergarten one year behind their Jefferson County peers. Bridges to Tomorrow helps parents set and achieve goals, with includes higher education for some of our parents.
