For the latest episode of StoryBoard 30:
“We’ve seen Bridge Builders transform young people in countless ways, and the result is a growing community of young leaders poised to reach across, lead the way, and build our community. Bridge Builders are not just the future leaders of tomorrow; youth today want to make a real difference. We are here to support them on that journey. And now more than ever, Memphis needs more Bridge Builders.” ~BRIDGES CEO Dana Wilson
“It was really a breath of fresh air. I didn’t know what to expect. At first my mom told me to do it, and when I actually got there it was something completely different than what I had expected, and it ended up being one of the best things I’ve done in my life.” ~Student and Youth Advisory Board Co-Chair Emmanuel Mosley
