The Bridge Leadership Academy is a community-led empowerment program focused on youth leadership, located in Kansas City, Missouri. We have established a collaborative alliance with Metropolitan school districts, community-based organizations, and corporations, to create educational & leadership development and workforce opportunity programs for youth.
During COVID-19, the Bridge has amplified our services and outreach initiatives for at-risk youth in the area by providing a safe and nurturing environment by extending our supplemental services. This includes providing tutoring in our Pandemic Pods, and our Snack Bag program.
