Bridges was established in the fall of 2008, as a partnership between Waubonsie Valley High School and V. Blanche Graham Elementary School. Today our club meets at Gwendolyn Brooks Elementary with support of students from Waubonsie Valley High School. The club holds bi-weekly one hour meetings and partners high school students with elementary students to help establish quality relationships for the purpose of promoting stability, support, friendship, and community. We carry out this mission through creating opportunities for children to share their interests, skills, and further their awareness of their surroundings in their local community. The club provides high school students exposure to future career possibilities with children, professional relationships with teachers, as well as a sense of purpose and satisfaction with their elementary student.
This flag was presented to our club in recognition of our support for soldiers serving the US Marine Corp. in Afghanistan.
