A TRULY YOUTH-LED MOVEMENT
Bridgemakers is a holistic civic social and financial capacity building platform which amplifies the stories and mentors the leadership of black, brown and otherwise marginalized youth. We build bridges between young artists, activists and entrepreneurs with experienced leaders to engage intergenerational collaboration in breaking cycles of miseducation, poverty, violence and addiction. Together, we’re reimagining and revitalizing marginalized communities to flourish with passion purpose positive relationships and power.
NOTHING ABOUT US WITHOUT US!
Bridgemakers' team of Youth Ambassadors is dedicated to ensuring youth voices are not only included but respected and engaged in all systems and policies which affect them. Just as we did with Minnesota's unemployment law by opening up 70 million dollars worth of life-saving Covid relief to students who had been laid off during the Covid-19 pandemic.
