About Bridge Builders Alabama
Bridge Builders® Alabama is a two-year program that works with students from public, private, parochial, and home schools.
Our purpose is to help ordinary youth find their voice, experience their power and build positive relationships to do the extraordinary. Bridge Builders® Alabama is designed to promote communication, understanding and trust among these developing leaders. Community projects, discussions, adventure education and first-hand experiences with community leaders are the training tools.
