The Bridge is a founding partner with the Canadian Mental Health Association Kelowna to offer ‘Connected by 25’, a multi-agency initiative focused on meeting the needs of 16-24 year olds who are vulnerable in their transition to adulthood. Connected By 25 empowers young adults by facilitating access to the social, emotional and material supports they need. With these supports in place, young people experience increased resilience and sense of belonging while learning skills to help mitigate risk.
The Bridge Youth Transitions Navigator works with young people providing them with direct support and assistance in achieving a successful transition to adulthood. This includes one-to-one support, systems navigation, life skills development and strengthening connections to community and natural supports.
