Building Bridges for Youth

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

BRIEF OVERVIEW

Building Bridges started in 1994 and has transitioned from assisting refugee Hmong youth and their families to serving victims of domestic violence within

Hmong, Latinx, and other minority communities.

Our program offers lessons, activities, and mentors for middle and high school aged youth to provide education and prevention of domestic abuse and support for survivors

through a bicultural perspective.

MISSION

We provide a safe space and sense of belonging, creating opportunities and experiences to help empower youth in the Eau Claire and Dunn County areas.

VISION

We bring together young people of various cultures who may have come from disrupted backgrounds to inspire them to become leaders who give back to their homes, schools, and communities.
 

If you are interested in being a volunteer, please contact the program coordinator and/or our office!

SERVICES

This program offers opportunities for students to participate in after-school activities that will increase and promote academic excellence, healthy relationships and understanding of various domestic abuse issues such as gender-based violence and teen dating violence.
