Many of San Diego’s talented high-achieving, low income teens find that they cannot participate in a sport, play an instrument, attend a summer program, develop their artistic talents solely because they cannot afford the associated costs. A Bridge For Kids works with schools and after school programs throughout San Diego County with the goal of identifying these teens and matching them with those who are willing to provide financial support and mentor the teens through their high school years and into college. Learn more about who we are and what we do.
A Bridge For Kids’ mission, to build a bridge between young teens who are in need of educational and financial assistance and those people that can provide these resources, cannot be accomplished without the support of the San Diego Community. We have a number of opportunities for philanthropic minded individuals and corporations who are interested in helping make a San Diego teen’s dream of a successful future a reality.

We are always looking for driven and ambitious low-income teens to sponsor and support through their high school years with the goal of developing their academics, interests and talents to make them competitive college applicants.

A Bridge For Kids interviews teens for sponsorship year round. We are looking for sponsors to provide financial support and mentor our candidates. It takes very little of your personal time to mentor a teen, as most of the communications are done over email. Should teens and their sponsor/mentor choose to meet, that can be arranged.
