Connecting the Dots from High School to College to Careers
The Bridge has been at work for the past six years to help connect the dots between education and career readiness – investing in the future of our community by investing in our greatest resources – young people and the institutions that prepare them for life.
Students are looking for purpose and meaning, an identity, and the sooner they connect their natural giftedness and interests with the skills and knowledge available through Doña Ana County’s rich educational assets, the sooner they begin to see who they could be.
Together, we will continue to pursue the most promising practices, tools, and programs for connecting the answers to students’ questions, “What do I want to be when I grow up?” to “What we, as a community, want to be when we grow up?”
We support four interconnected priorities that propel students toward high school, post-secondary, and career success. And we lead a partnership working to meet the overarching community need for a comprehensive plan for workforce development aligned to growing well-paying industries to support the long-term economic strengthening of the region.
