Clearances

Requirements

We are so grateful for the volunteers that serve at the Bridge. There are several ways that you can get involved. Some involve working with students, and some involve working behind the scenes.

If you desire to serve with building upkeep, administrative work, or any other behind the scenes job, you can discuss this with us at info@thebridgeacademy.org and fill out a volunteer form.

If you'd like to serve alongside students or adults in one of the programs at the Bridge Academy and Community Center, you must complete a few steps:

1) Contact us at info@thebridgeacadmy.org to talk to us about your initial interest.
2) Fill out our Volunteer Form (link below).
3) Complete applications for Child Abuse, Criminal Background Check, and FBI fingerprints (if did not live in PA for last 10 years). Send results when received to info@thebridgeacademy.org, or download them to your volunteer form.

4) Get plugged into a specific program, event, or service opportunity.
