Bridge Builders Collaborate is a leadership, diversity and community action training program for middle and high school students. Students who are selected make a one-year commitment. Within the year, students attend a one-week leadership conference in the summer and continue through the school year by attending a training, community action event and elective event each semester. Students develop leadership skills, build friendships, and work together to create positive change in the community.
