This past weekend was definitely a busy one for our HDS B.R.I.D.G.E.S. students. On Saturday morning, the students visited Bank of America with their parents as part of our Community Based Instruction (CBI) to open their first bank account. Funds from our Foundation’s grant make it possible for each student to receive $100 to open an account. They will use the money as they venture out on their CBI field trips each week during the school year.
Thanks to all of you and our donors who gave during Give Miami Day last year, we can continue to expand our HDS B.R.I.D.G.E.S. program and fund the activities that will help these students learn life skills as they transition to their post-secondary journey.
