About Bridges at the St. Paul’s Schools
Bridges was founded in 1993 as a four-week summer enrichment program on the campus of The St. Paul’s Schools in Baltimore County, MD. It initially served 18 elementary school students from a Title I School in northeast Baltimore City. Students were supported by a paid seasonal staff and a handful of high school-aged volunteers from The St. Paul’s Schools. The program has grown significantly since then.
Bridges at The St. Paul’s Schools currently serves 200 public school students from ages 9-23 and engages about 100 upper school students each year. The St. Paul’s Schools provide in-kind fiscal sponsorship, in-kind year-round facilities, and in-kind back-office support.
Upper School students from The St. Paul’s Schools have year-round volunteer opportunities in programs for Bridges’ youngest students:
- Become an After School Tutor: The Bridges Elementary After School Program runs from September to May. Upper School volunteers commit to one season at a time and help guide enrichment activities and provide 1-on-1 homework help to their 4th and 5th grade buddies.
- Become a Summer Counselor: The Bridges Elementary / Middle Summer Institute runs for five weeks in June/July. Volunteer roles for Upper School students last for two weeks and include assisting in the classroom, helping to chaperone field trips, coordinating special activities, and being an overall positive presence at Bridges.
