I have loved what the Bridge Program has offered us. It has opened doors that we never knew had existed. We will always be greatful for it. And thankful for the part they played in the educational and sociable development of our son.

It was very fun to be at Peninsula Bridge as a teacher aide in math. During the past three summers I was a bridge student as well for my 6th and 7th grade. This was a great program to be in because the classroom settings and teachers enjoyed one to learn in a fun away. It also allowed students to have a head start for next year. I t was most statisfing for me to be at the Peninsula Bridge Program.

I'm an English T.A. at the bridge program and it has been an amazing experience! The students evolve personally and academically and the teachers are passionate, amazing people. It is an amazing program that enables students to excel in school and life. Not only do they learn academic lessons, but also life lessons! Overall, the program has a conductive atmosphere that is conducive to all kinds of growth, and the bond between the students, T.A's, and the teachers is amazing!!!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the way they students talk, and interact with each other. I have also seen improvement through the assessments that are given at the beginning and the end of the program. Each student improves in at least one aspect: personally or academically.

keep the program the way it is. Everything is just as great as it could be.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Working with the kids is amazing!!!!!! i have gotten so close to them and overall i have just had an amazing time here!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

amazing, social, enthusiastic people who are committed to helping all of the students here!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

have many more locations and it could affect so many more students who are in need!

Ways to make it better...

i can't really think of a way that the program could be improved. It is personal and lots of fun!!!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

it's financial needs. not to an extreme need; however all of the students here attend without paying money and the program supports everything; therefore, it needs the support to go on!

One thing I'd also say is that...

this program is one that should definitely continue!

Peninsula Bridge does an incredible job of preparing youth from underserved neighborhoods along the 101 corridor of the SF Peninsula to be successful when they enter high school. They do this with a commitment to teach the basics of math and English while providing a rich program that is fun and interesting for the students. The organizers, site directors, teachers, mentors and everyone else who is involved are passionate about their mission and do a tremendous job of making the students feel cared for.

The Great!
