Going Beyond Business
Employees of Bridge Strategy are demonstrating that the most valuable gift that people can give is their time.
As a Firm, we have a deep and long-standing relationship with Junior Achievement of Chicago. Every year our consultants (and significant others) volunteer at schools throughout Chicago and teach students basic concepts of economics, personal finance, and world trade. We take a great deal of pride making the content relevant and fun to learn for students. In addition to teaching, we also hold our own Bowl-a-Thon to raise funds for JA – great fun for a great cause.
Bridge also supports the Howard Area Community Center, which offers programs that address poverty, hunger, low educational achievement, limited work experience and skills, and health-related problems.
We actively encourage and support our employees' ongoing involvement with several other community organizations. We firmly believe that by supporting community-focused activities we strengthen the bonds between people and help our community to grow stronger.
