Bridges Program Kicks off School Year

The Bridges Program at Georgetown ISD hosted an Open House on October 18 where students showcased their learning to the community. Guests were served coffee and sweet treats created by the students all while having the opportunity to witness demonstrations of student work in the program. The community saw first-hand how local partners are investing in the program through job coaching and employment opportunities. Students showcased their unique skill sets and personalities through a variety of displays.
