Bridges: Lifelong Journeys for High School & College

“I’m getting as much out of this as the kids are! I think all the seniors loved the lesson on resilience. We know we are resilient because of where we are on life’s journey, but the lesson allowed us to reflect on what events brought about our resilience.”
