Each year in the U.S., approximately 400,000 youth with disabilities exit public high schools. Our intensive hands-on approach helps young adults with disabilities find meaningful jobs during and after they complete high school.

What is Bridges?

If you are 17-24 and live in a Bridges city, we can help you prepare for and find a job that matches your interests and abilities. We teach you the skills to succeed and then match you with a paying job.

  • Can get to and from work independently
