SOWMA's Bridge Mentoring Program is designed to help teens experiencing homelessness stay engaged in high school and supported through college or vocational training.  We place special emphasis on working with unaccompanied youth, ages 16 - 22, who are on their own without the support of a parent or guardian.  In addition to helping students navigate post-secondary educational plans and career goals, we support students through GED study and exams, career readiness, HiSet exams, internships, job placement and apprenticeships. 

Most of our Bridge Mentoring students are the first in their family to pursue a post-secondary degree.  We currently have 87 students in the program.  Students have graduated from the following colleges and universities.
