Introduce Youth to Services at The Bridge
Many young people in crisis find their way to The Bridge with the help of our Outreach team. The Outreach team builds strong connections with youth in the community through one-to-one contact. Additionally, the Outreach team builds strong partnerships with youth service providers including schools, libraries, recreation and community centers, and social workers. The team is available to meet with youth, service providers, and community members so partners feel comfortable referring youth.
Order Bridge for Youth program flyers, brochures and posters for your school, office, or youth center. Let youth know help is just a text-away or phone call away, 24/7/365. Contact Kathryn Primas at firstname.lastname@example.org or Fran Drazan at email@example.com.
Need a Speaker for Your Organization?
The Outreach Team at The Bridge is available for speaking engagements to groups of all sizes including schools, PTA, civic groups, and book clubs. Speakers are experts in working with teens and understand best practices in communication strategies, emotional health and well-being, and handling conflict. Speaker fees are on a sliding scale. For those organizations who can, a contribution to The Bridge is appreciated. Topics include:
- Parenting 101: How to Be a Good Parent to Your Teen
- Talking with Your Teen: How to Communicate with Your Teen
- Facts & Myths About Homeless Youth
- Homeless Youth and the LGBTQ Community
- Teens Coming Out
