September Programs

The Bridge Teen Center has announced that afterschool student programming will continue into September on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Friday nights. Program details will be listed in the September Program Magazine which will be released online on Monday, August 17th. Online sign-up will begin on Monday, August 24th.

In September, The Bridge will continue to offer a mixture of in-person programs and programs through Zoom. All afterschool programs will be limited to groups of 10 students or less, and students will only be permitted to sign up for one program per day. Students have the opportunity to visit The Bridge Teen Center Tuesday through Friday if they are signed up in advance for a program.

September Friday Nights

To attend Friday Nights in September, students will have to sign up in advance for either the 6:30PM or 8:30PM timeslots. Group 1 will take place between 6:30PM – 8:00PM and Group 2 will take place between 8:30PM – 10:00PM. Our team will clean and disinfect student areas between 8:00PM and 8:30PM. For the time being, each Friday Night group will be limited to 40 students or less. This is a temporary requirement based on COVID-19 safety guidelines. All students must be picked up and dropped off promptly.
