Peninsula Bridge believes that all of our students, if given equal access and opportunity, can reach their full potential and graduated from high school and four-year colleges. We provide high-achieving students, living in low-income communities, with academic and personal support during middle school years through college graduation. We are helping to break the cycle of poverty and greatly increase each student's chance for success in school, life and career.
Provide low-income/first-generation students with equal academic access and social capital. Students develop skills crucial for academic success in high school college preparatory programs (study and test taking skills, self advocacy, time management) as well as non-cognitive skills necessary for success in college and life - like critical thinking, problem solving, leadership, collaboration, public speaking, innovation, and effective communication. Support students with the transition to college and completion. Work with students to ensure they are prepared with the appropriate skills to transition to higher education and/or a professional career.
