Bridge Teachers for Youth
Welcome to Bridge Teachers for Youth, your one-stop site to find all the information you need to start your own class or program or to find new ideas and information for your existing program.
We believe that the success of Youth Bridge will be assured by the sharing and trading of ideas and tools on a continual basis. New teachers and/or organizers will benefit from first hand information from those that have existing programs and from the organizations that are in place to help us become successful.

The Asheville ‘How to Teach and Organize Youth Bridge’ workshop was a tremendous amount of fun. Here are the documents presented at the workshop.
"How to Approach Schools" A school administrator working with us has put together a packet of information on "How to Approach Schools" to give you a basic set of information you can tailor to your situation in approaching your local schools. You can put the 'slant' you need on the information. Areas you might stress could be the lack of cost to the schools, the academic benefits or the social benefits to the children. You should talk to some parents in your area, familiarize yourself with what problems the educational structure in your area is facing and create a packet that stresses the help you can provide them. Good Luck! Call or email if you need advise or help. Patty Tucker 404-735-4779 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
"Bridge: A Path to Math" is now available coded to the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Standards for your assistance in reaching schools across the country. download the document
