Welcome to Bridges Project for Education

Bridges was founded in 1997 on a simple idea—to expand college access for people of all ages, with an emphasis on students who are from the first-generation in their families to seek higher education.

That concept is thriving today as we provide personalized, comprehensive counseling throughout the admissions and financial aid process.

Supporting students on their path to college.

We strive to expand college access and improve college retention for students of all ages, with an emphasis on first-generation students. We know that helping students earn college and vocational degrees can be an effective way to increase their ability to contribute positively to the broader economy and social welfare of our community.
