My experience so far has been fantastic. I’ve learned a lot through the program. it’s has opened me up too many experiences I wouldn’t have experienced without bridge builders’ organization.”

- BBNG Student

“This has showed me many opportunities. bridge builders encouraged me to want to go father in life. for example, college it opened my eyes to a life I’m not very familiar with. they gave me knowledge and helped me become a better me.”

- BBNG Student

“I’ve brought up my grades a lot since being in this program, Mr Wright goes over grades with us and tells us how we can better ourselves and if we have an issue, he’ll help us resolve it with the teacher. The college field trips are helpful and a good experience. It’s also helped socially because I’ve met a lot of new people and have close bonds with them now.”

- BBNG Student

“I have had great experiences with the people of this program as well as the program itself. I have seen others have good times as well. I’ve seen my peers laugh more than ever and I’ve also seen some conflict but due to the adults being so quick to act and great at their jobs the situations will sometimes be quickly diffused. The times I’ve had as a mentor and as a student have been amazing. I’d recommend the bridge builders program to all my peers if any of them cared enough to show up as often as I do.”

- BBNG Student

“It has been very helpful. The program has helped me with better decision making, better social skills, giving back to the community, and much more. I feel like this program gives me a safe space to open up about my everyday struggles. They also provide math tutors and that can be very helpful at times. Over all I feel this program will help me become successful.”- BBNG Student

“I never really thought about college until we went to Sacramento state. After the tour I am excited to visit and learn about the different schools. I enjoy going to the middle school to mentor the younger kids.”
