Building Bridges: Transform brings together diverse young women and gender-expansive youth from Metro Denver high schools for a year-long life changing experience. Together they develop leadership and relationship-building skills like self-awareness, confidence, and empathy that are required for working through conflict and growing together from it.

These young leaders first focus on personal transformation and relationship-building, and then engage with their communities through a social change project. All participants are competitively selected for this dynamic program and receive a full scholarship for participation expenses.

Applications are now OPEN for 2018-2019!  Click here for more information.
