our mission

creating the vision to see the opportunity

Bridge Builders Initiatives (BBI) helps low performing youth within schools and juvenile systems, and adult inmates, by combining industry level multi-media production training and mental health counseling.

We offer programs that allow students to learn skilled trades through the lens of multi-media production. Simultaneously, the program teaches the students to use their innate gifts and creativity to generate opportunity through creative arts therapy.

coaching

We take our students through team building and leadership exercises to grow their knowledge in how to quickly overcome adversities they face throughout their life experiences.

success measures

Creativity is a core aspect of human performance and can be accessed and developed through training, counseling, and coaching.​
 

We aim to reduce the number of low-performing students in schools, the number of youth on the pathway to prison, and the percentage of inmates that return to prison.
