Making a Full Commitment
The Bridge has eight satellite programs: seven Team Up programs, after-school programs housed in elementary and middle schools, and one year-round program in Southwind Villas, a community housing project affiliated with the Jacksonville Housing Authority.
The time of the day for highest juvenile crime is after school between 3 and 6 PM. Negative peer pressure, idle time, exposure to violence and hopelessness result in drug use, failure and crime. Team Up programs address these problems by providing a safe, productive place for young people by providing homework assistance, fun enrichment and a hot meal.
- TEAM UP: 1800 children served
- Southwind Villas: Over 160 children served
- Summer Camps: 1022 children served
