The Bridge Partnership Program

Mission and Vision

The Bridge Partnership provides students, beginning in middle school, with a three summer experience at BSU along with year round academic support throughout high school.

The Bridge Partnership is committed to advancing the educational potential of underserved youth from Brockton and New Bedford by providing summer academic enrichment as well as year-round individual educational case management and support.
The Bridge Partnership is a strengths-based collaboration among students, families, schools, Bridgewater State University, and the local community to enhance the success of each participant in high school and beyond.
Our vision is:

  • for each BP student to have access to all of the opportunities, supports and positive relationships they need to succeed in high school and beyond;

  • for each BP student to have advocates who are fully committed to their educational success;

  • for each BP student to be empowered to make informed and appropriate college and career decisions.
