Helping our youth bridge the gap between education and employment. 

Building Bridges to Careers (BBC) was founded in 2012 by a dedicated group of education, community, and business leaders who are passionate about connecting education with real life experiences to ensure all students graduate ready for success in college, careers, and life. Together, we are focused on building bright futures for our students, businesses, community, and region.

Our goal, simply put, is to help 100% of our students bridge the gap between education and employment. This means students will be able to choose a viable career, create a career path to follow, and transition to employment successfully by following the path created.
