We think learning should be an amazing part of a kid’s life. The PAST Bridge Program team designs, tests and implements a variety of summer programs, design challenges, and after school programs. These programs and challenges engage students and link learning to life in a fun and unique manner in collaboration with professionals and community partners with real world issues. Throughout our programs participants are introduced to and encouraged to apply skills that help make the transition from classroom to career seamless.
Summer ProgramsImmersive summer programs give students an opportunity to apply education in real world settings. Over an extended period of time, usually one week, expert directors take students on adventures to learn in multiple settings about a variety of content areas. These adventures help students develop the soft skills that business and industry desire, such as problem-solving, collaboration, communication and critical thinking. We guarantee that students will complete these programs better prepared for their futures!
