We are Dedicated to Serviving our Community
Programs are provided free of charge through strong corporate and foundation support, committed volunteers, and generous donations from many individuals.
Thriving Under The Influence Program
The Bridge Builders Foundation seeks to remove the barriers of race, poverty, ignorance, and despair through mentoring, educational support, health care awareness, and community uplift.
Dr. Ernest E. Just Science Program
The Summer Marine Science Camp and the year-long Saturday Science Academy exposes youth to instruction and activities across a range of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) subjects and careers. Youth explore the wonders of life, earth, and physical sciences in a variety of settings.
In response to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, Bridge Builders Foundation has expanded its existing school and community-based program engagement to a new distance learning platform. The expanded program will target socially vulnerable racial and ethnic minority youth and communities and serve students who would otherwise be unable to access these resources.
Salute Scholars Program
The Salute Scholars Program awards initial scholarships for current graduating high school seniors and continuing renewal scholarships for those continuing their education at a 4-year college.
Help us raise money to support the Salute Scholars Program
Our goal is to maximize college graduation rates for African American males, which is a problem. To date over $887,000 in scholarships has been awarded. With your support we’re able to annually give 100 students the financial resources to attend college, and provide individual mentorship, coaching, tutoring, and referral support to aid in their academic and professional success.
