As Bridge Ready males begin their academic career, they often face stresses that stem from their community, neighborhood, family and school. These include low-quality caregivers, violence or lack of safety, poor nutrition or environment, harsh or inconsistent discipline, and brittle identities.

We work with mediating institutions, seek out social, cultural and intellectual capital and build significant quality relationships. By applying the core values that guide our work, we achieve positive outcomes, including optimal development of our Bridge Ready boys who begin to contribute in their communities.
