The Brooklyn Bridge Alliance for Youth is an intermediary that was created by the cities of Brooklyn
Center and Brooklyn Park and supports organizations that provide out-of-school-time programming for youth.
The purpose of the Alliance is to cooperatively support positive youth
development in out-of-school-time opportunities for all youth in Brooklyn Center and Brooklyn Park.
The Brooklyn Bridge Alliance assures the success of all youth by challenging the conditions that diminish their hope, by assuring that all youth are connected to a trusting adult who is vested in their healthy development as measured by educational success and mastery of life skills.
To coordinate a system of high-quality, accessible and fully-resourced opportunities that lead to an increase in high school graduation, pathways to college and career, and youth safety and well-being.
