Who We Are


The Bridges Project at CWU

In communities across Washington state, underrepresented boys and girls are increasingly at risk of failing classes, dropping out of high school, and giving up on their educations altogether. These young people need to know that someone cares about them, and their future.

The Bridges Project is a grant-funded mentoring program through Central Washington University designed to inspire at-risk youth to pursue their dreams through higher education. Bridges promotes the development of underrepresented and underprivileged boys and girls by instilling a sense of accomplishment, belonging and hope through educational programs and mentoring.

Bridges sends CWU students to school districts across the state to mentor middle and high school students, to let youth know that someone does care, and that their futures do matter.

Our Mission

To empower youth, especially those underrepresented and underprivileged, to reach their potential as dynamic, compassionate, and responsible individuals through education.
