The Bridge

The Bridge is an Up-Skilling Experiential Learning Program for Newcomer Youth in High School in New Brunswick. It is an innovative pathway for youth that will address the skills for success needed to facilitate a successful transition into the labour force. Newcomer youth aged 16-20 who do not speak English as a first or home language will have the option to participate in specialized skills-based training and receive resources and tools that will support their integration into the labour force and their community. In addition to intensive language training and workplace skills instruction, youth will have the opportunity to participate in a scaffolded work experience in New Brunswick.
