WNBA Giving Back to ourBridgeourBRIDGE image cropped

February 14, 2019
12:00 Noon – 3:00 PM at Park Road Books

Help us support ourBRIDGE and foster an inclusive and welcome environment! Please donate or purchase children’s books for all ages to restock the ourBRIDGE library, recently damaged by water!

A little bit about the organization:  “At ourBRIDGE, students receive homework help, participate in hands-on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering , Arts and Math) projects, and engage in a culturally relevant curriculum that emphasizes experiential learning. We provide one-on-one daily English literacy tutoring in order to accelerate the students’ acquisition of the English language. ourBRIDGE for KIDS aims to close the communication gap between school, teachers and families through the coordination of home visits, translation of school documents, and the organization of literacy nights and cultural events for parents at our center. When needed, we also provide parents transportation and translation support at teacher conferences and serve as the liaison between parents and schools.”
