BridgeYear needs support from volunteers to create Career Kits, hands-on career simulations that students complete from home. In this time of distance learning and limited field trips or career fairs, BridgeYear wants to bring meaningful and engaging forms of career exploration directly to students. Generation SERVE volunteers are needed to help put these Career Kits together. 


Our Generation SERVE volunteer families will pick up supplies to create the Career Kits and join us for a brief Zoom call for detailed instructions. Then our volunteers will put together the career kits that BridgeYear will distribute to the many students who will learn about career paths after high school.. BridgeYear seeks to enlighten students to the numerous high-growth, high-demand career options requiring less than a 4-year degree by putting on Career Test Drive Fairs at high schools throughout Houston where students engage in hands-on activities allowing them to "try on" different careers. BridgeYear seeks to connect students to viable and accessible career opportunities so that students graduate from high school with a path to gainful employment.
