How-To Guides

How-To Guides are formal lesson plans geared toward teachers, community/senior center directors, etc. Consider them easy-to-execute and step-by-step guide sheets to engage, entertain and strengthen families, organizations and communities.

Members Only: Monthly How-To Guides

These monthly guides will give you access to timely content to plan your lesson/activity/conversation. The theme is based on nationally recognized observances that will take place 1-2 months after the guide has been released. Each guide comes with a monthly webinar that will allow you to review the guide with a Bridges Together trainer to further prepare your planning.
