Bridges to a Brighter Future

Our Mission

To transform the lives of students, whose potential outdistances their circumstances, by providing educational access and opportunity through a comprehensive program that builds self-confidence, resiliency, and leadership in order to break the cycle of poverty through post-secondary education.

Our Program

Bridges to a Brighter Future is a nationally awarded comprehensive college access and success program for Greenville County, South Carolina high school and college students whose potential outdistances their circumstances. Bridges is designed to not only expose students to college, but to address and eliminate the personal, social, and cultural barriers that often prevent low-income and first-generation students from achieving college graduation. Bridges to a Brighter Future literally changes lives.
