For the First Time Ever - FREE Bus Pickup During Summer at Jerling Junior High!

For the first time ever, The Bridge Teen Center will offer FREE bus pick-up, from Jerling Junior High, during the Summer. The bus will pick up at Jerling Junior High on Wednesdays at 1:00 PM on the north side of the building. Advanced sign-up is required. Click here to sign up.

Students must be able to picked up from The Bridge Teen Center when we close at 6PM.

Students that need a Bridge ID replacement will be able to receive one at no charge on Friday nights during the month of June. Every Friday night, The Bridge Staff will have an ID station set up in the Life Skills area for students that need a replacement. Although ID replacements are free, lanyard replacements will be $2. Students are not required to have a lanyard. For more information call 708.532.0500.

To help us better communicate, students will also be asked to update their phone numbers that we have on file as they are getting their updated ID cards.
