Each Summer BridgesWork offers three weeks of leadership development for students in grades 7-12.
Leadership Academy I: The curriculum for this program is based upon the Search Institute’s Internal Developmental Assets. Grounded in extensive research in youth development, resiliency, and prevention, the Developmental Assets represent the relationships, opportunities, and personal qualities that young people need to avoid risks and to thrive.
During this first week of leadership development local educators guide students through activities that represent focus on a different asset each day.
Leadership Academy II: Students who have completed Leadership Academy I are eligible to participate in sessions designed to help them develop a concrete plan of action for their post-secondary school careers.
Leadership Academy III: Students who have completed academies I and II are eligible to participate in an out-of-state mission trip experience.
