Building Bridges: Transform

Youth Participant Information

Building Bridges: Transform (formerly the Building Bridges Colorado Program) is now in its third year.  This program brings together 50 young women from across Metro Denver for a full year of fun and meaningful experiences. Together they develop self-awareness, authentic relationships, and leadership skills. Participants connect with others who are both alike and different from them to transform divisions, discrimination, and conflict in their lives and communities. All participants selected for this dynamic program receive a full scholarship for participation expenses.
