Founding Partners

A group of nine local businesses have been with us since the beginning, helping to define the initiative and our plan of action.

History

Building Bridges to Careers (BB2C) was founded in 2012 by a dedicated group of education, community, and business leaders with the goal of creating a K-12 college and career readiness continuum. After assessing the level at which the community was working together to impact career readiness, the participating volunteers collaboratively built programs, events, and networks to address the gaps that were found. Job shadowing support, started by the Teen Career Awareness Initiative in 2008, provided a spring board for the expansion of programming, and today we have several different signature programs that bring our mission statement to life.
