Cultivating an Ecosystem of Opportunity
People are the greatest asset of any community. They define its character and flavor, but also are the economic engines that can drive it forward. When the promise and potential of a community’s people are well aligned to the employment and entrepreneurial opportunities in key industry sectors, individual earning power fuels the overall prosperity of a region.
Making and growing these connections is the urgent mission of The Bridge of Southern New Mexico.
The Bridge is an unprecedented collaboration between Doña Ana County’s leaders in business, economic development, education, and government working together to:
- Increase high school and college completion rates
- Build a skilled and ready workforce for current and future businesses
Our work is precedent-setting and powerful. Our lessons learned and innovative approaches pave the way to a bright future for us, as well as generating best practices and replicable models for the rest of state.
The Bridge is strategically building the connections for an ecosystem of opportunity that will encourage our people – New Mexico True Talent – to bloom and grow and prosper right here in Doña Ana County.
