The Bridge

Creative Action’s Bridge program offers specialized programming for middle school students and is led by professional Teaching Artists. Through high-quality digital arts and performance projects, the program empowers youth to create positive social change. 

Launching at the start of the 2019-20 school year, The Bridge, focuses on ages 11 – 14 to fill a critical gap in current out-of-school time services for middle school youth in Austin and serves as a hub for a diverse group of youth who will develop community building.
