We talk about The Bridge pretty often (because it’s so cool!) but here is the real “meat and potatoes” if you will. These are the connections that have been made between Bridge graduates and local organizations that needed their help on their board of directors!

The Bridge is a training course that covers the basics in nonprofit board and government commission service. Following the training sessions, Seattle Works is committed to working with each individual who is ready for service! We take time to get to know the graduates, their skills, interests, availability, etc. and suggest potential organizations where they can make a connection and hopefully join their board of directors.
