We partner with MyCom in working to empower and provide growth opportunities for youth. They assist us in promoting community awareness and participation in our Bridge To Freedom School and Winterfest programs. Working together we have provided youth with exposure and growth opportunities including community service, field trips to historical sites, and events.

Youth Opportunities Unlimited (Y.O.U.)

We partner with Y.O.U. by serving as an employer for their summer jobs program. Y.O.U. serves teens living in families at or below the poverty level – the income earned helps teens and their families. The summer jobs program provides a constructive opportunity and a safe environment for teens to work and learn.  During our Bridge To Freedom School program, teens are employed as junior leaders and receive leadership training and an opportunity to serve and mentor younger youth within our program.

Cuyahoga Community College

We partner with Cuyahoga Community College by serving as a worksite for their Summer Internship Program. Students gain valuable career experience by working with us and serving as Program Coordinators for our Bridge To Freedom School program. The interns are also instrumental in providing Cuyahoga Community College exposure, including campus tours, for the youth participating in our program.

Catholic Charities

During our Bridge To Freedom School program, Catholic Charities Summer Food Program provides two daily free, nutritious meals to help children 18 and younger get the nutrition they need to learn, play and grow throughout the summer months when they are out of school.
