The Bridge Program

About

The Bridge Program facilitates aspiring young Muslim professionals in college and high school in navigating their professional opportunities. Our mentors offer advice on how to best achieve professional career and life goals. The program is composed of a series of monthly workshops that focus on professional development skills such as personal financial management, time management, resume writing, mock interviews, and organizational culture.

Each workshop features a high profile Muslim American guest speaker. Previous speakers have included co-founders of multibillion dollar Private Equity firms, partners at prestigious law firms, veteran journalists at high profile newspapers, critically-acclaimed comedians, and medical professionals known for humanitarian work around the world. Through the Bridge Program, we aim to equip young Muslims with a network of professionals and skills to achieve their aspirations.
