A MISSION OF LEADERSHIP
DEVELOPING THE NEXT GENERATION OF LEADERS
IN THE RIVER REGION OF ALABAMA
Bridge Builders Alabama opposes racism in any form and is committed to diversity and inclusion. Recent events, including the tragic and inexcusable loss of innocent lives, and the ensuing violence that has emerged in cities nationwide, point to the reality that we have much work to do in our nation to achieve Dr. King’s imperative that “we must live together as brothers.”
Bridge Builders Alabama was established with the mission to develop among high school students a group of future leaders who will lay aside individual, social, economic, and cultural differences and work for the benefit of all.
Since its inception, our organization has sought to address the very issues of racism and injustice which our country continues to struggle with today. Much work remains to be done. But by embracing the fundamental premise that black lives matter in our collective pursuit of human dignity, Bridge Builders Alabama is confident our mission and our work are not in vain. We will continue to promote our Mission Statement and our commitment to living together as brothers and sisters.
Bridge Builders Alabama provides two one-year leadership programs that work with high school students from public, private, parochial, and home schools. Our purpose is to help ordinary youth find their voice, experience their power and build positive relationships to do the extraordinary. Bridge Builders Alabama is designed to promote communication, understanding and trust among these developing leaders. Community projects, discussions, adventure education and first-hand experiences with community leaders are the training tools.
We’re so grateful for the generous and loyal support of the following Bridge Builders Alabama donors.
Because of these companies and individuals, we are developing future leaders who will lay aside individual, social, economic, and cultural differences and work for the benefit of all.
