ABOUT US

Serving five counties in the River Region, Bridge Builders Alabama provides two one-year leadership programs for 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.

OUR MISSION

The mission of Bridge Builders Alabama is 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.
