“A rising tide lifts all boats.”
The Bridge Downeast promotes a community approach to youth enrichment, support, hope and inspiration.
The Bridge Downeast is a non-profit organization that seeks to have a positive impact on the Down East community by offering a variety of programs through out the year. During the school year and summer break The Bridge Downeast offers a 21st CCLC after-school and summer program. Thought out the year, The Bridge is open on weekends as a safe and fun hang out for local teens.
In the past, The Bridge Downeast has partnered with several organizations in order to develop opportunities within the community. Some examples include collaborating with Shodor which is a math/science organization out of Durham in order to provide camps for middle and high school students during the summer, partnering with a Foreign Exchange Student Program, and by sponsoring teams participating in the Beaufort Boat-building Challenge.
The Board of Directors recognize that the future of our community lies in today’s youth. Enhancing and supporting their development throughout childhood and adolescence provides the best chance for a successful transition into responsible adulthood.
