Bridging Forward is launching a new model that needs volunteers. This is a fantastic opportunity to make a real difference in your community. Current needs:
  • Allies (people who walk alongside someone committed to financial stability and higher-wage careers and help them get there)
  • Child program leads: supervise and lead a diverse group of kids in appropriate activities/learning once a week for 60 minutes while their caregivers are doing the work of the program
  • Hospitality help: support the logistics of hosting a large group of people who are working together to improve their lives and the health of our community (helping organize provided meals, serving, tidy-up)
