PARENT COMMENTS ABOUT BRIDGE
“My child is more confident about attending high school.”
“I’ve seen such a change in my daughter. She was excited about school and would come home and tell me about things she had done that day. It helps raise self-esteem and teamwork. As a parent, I learned things about myself.”
“(Bridge) helped my son to listen and be a leader, not a follower.”
