"Bridge" is a non-profit, free after school program for at-risk youth, located just 10 minutes from Geneseo in Mt. Morris. Bridge provides a safe space for children to make friends, do homework and play, sheltering the children from the drugs, violence and financial strain at home and in the community. Geneseo students volunteer to staff Bridge: we serve as role models, confidantes and friends to these children without stable support systems. 

It is our mission to “bridge” the socioeconomic, racial and geographic divides separating us. If we invest time into promoting well-being while the children are young, perhaps we can break the generational cycle of poverty in the future.
