BridgeYear 2017-2018 Impact Report

  1. 1. B R I D G E Y E A R IMPACT REPORT 2017-2018 SCHOOL YEAR
  2. 2. BridgeYear advisors help students determine their next steps for community college, vocational training, or employment   LETTER FROM THE CO-FOUNDERS We are proud to present BridgeYear’s first annual Impact Report. Your support has helped our new and growing organization launch hundreds of recent high school graduates on a path to economic mobility. BridgeYear was born out of our experiences working with high school students as college counselors. Many of the students we served were graduating without a clear plan for the future. Moreover, students were unaware of the many high-paying, high-demand jobs in the Houston economy that do not require a Bachelor's degree. Without this knowledge and a four-year degree, students were often limited to entry level jobs, earning below a living wage. BridgeYear designs and implements “Career Test Drive” (CTD) Fairs which give students hands-on exposure to high demand careers.  We know exposure itself is not enough, so we provide ongoing advising after high school to build student self-efficacy and purpose. Just one year since our first Career Test Drive Fair, we have facilitated over 3800 career experiences at 20 schools across Houston. Demand for our fairs has grown beyond our expectations, mostly through positive reviews and word-of-mouth publicity. We have also expanded our career offerings and solidified our first industry partners to begin building employment pipelines straight from high school. Our advising services have also seen tremendous growth. With the adoption of a new messaging platform, advising is now more streamlined, doubling our capacity to serve students. The 2017-2018 school year has brought exciting changes and growth for the BridgeYear team. We look forward to expanding our impact and innovation through increased partnerships with schools and employers. Together, we can help more Houston youth leverage post-secondary education and employment opportunities in our great city.

The opportunity to try on careers has gotten them more interested in college than before they started.”                                                     - College Counselor “I had a lot of fun. I didn’t really know what I wanted to do before, and this opened up my mind to say hey, I have another chance at doing something.
