“I was looking to work with at-risk youth and was surprised that Bridge is one of the few agencies in Boston serving homeless youth.
A large part of the work I do is supporting youth emotionally during this time in their lives. I also provide case management support for our youth.

Interning here at Bridge was a great way to build off my previous experience in youth services.”Read More
