With the Y, everyone can… be healthier, happier and connected to their community; and help those who are not.
The Bridge Project aligns with the YMCA's vision by:
- Building self-esteem and personal capacity
- Reducing the need to re-offend
- Facilitating community involvement in the rehabilitation process
- Building partnerships with the business community to provide economic opportunities for those in need
WE OFFER to INSPIRE
A successful, innovative community approach by providing support, training and employment opportunities for young ex-offenders trapped in the recurring cycle of crime, poverty and imprisonment.
WE STRIVE to BUILD
A safer, more supportive society where all young ex-offenders who seek to improve their lives can access meaningful opportunities. And thus, they can become valued members of the community.
WE WILL HELP
Reduce re-offending rates by supporting young offenders to rebuild their lives through social and economic engagement in their community.
