"After I got my GED, the follow up was regular and consistent and so many opportunities were provided to me to explore my next steps. I am very grateful to The Bridge Academy, and am very excited to begin my journey at Wolverine! I am also grateful that I am able to set this example for all 7 of my siblings and my friends and peers. I want them all to see that if you work hard and focus on the future, you can do anything you want!”

- Christina, 2019 Bridge Academy Graduate
