Our vision

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.
