The Bridge After School Program is a community center that provides free assistance and tutoring for refugee and immigrant children and their families. Funded by the 21st Century grant, portions of In Goode Company profit, and community partnerships, the center is focused on creating an environment where people of all cultures and economic status can learn English and become healthy, confident members of their community. Started in October of 2010, the center provides small and large group tutoring for children, access to other community resources, communication between families and public schools, and information for parents. It is our vision to see these children transform into competent students, confident adults, and civic leaders.
The Bridge After School Program works primarily with low-income immigrant & refugee students in Charlotte, NC. The program provides a safe environment of enrichment & educational support for our students from local Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools. Our students are guided in character & skill building activities by well-trained, caring instructors who have the heart of a teacher. Many of these type of services would not be available for refugee students without the help of corporate sponsors & grants.
Students enjoy games, arts, crafts, social & club activities. Our after school students are also provided homework help & a supplemental education environment where they receive academic assistance, participate in visits to the public library & occasional field trips.
