Unlock your school’s potential today.
Smart solutions for schools, students, and staff.
Schools are where we cultivate our future. And yet, many are stuck in the past. Outdated systems and practices leave even the best-intentioned teachers and administrators struggling to deal with the very real, very complex issues schools now face on a day to day basis.
From discipline problems to disconnects between students and staff, (not to mention endemic levels of burnout among staff), it’s no wonder that so many schools struggle.
Let’s fix that.
Here's how it works:
BRIDGE Trauma-Informed Culturally-Responsive (TICR) Program is designed for teachers and school staff to develop trauma-informed and culturally responsive classroom strategies that promote students’ social-emotional health and academic achievement while supporting staff wellness. Available through on-site and virtual models, our program allows schools to scale learning and build internal capacity.
BRIDGE TICR Program is divided into four focus areas:
The Story Behind Our Kids
This focuses on defining healthy student-teacher connectedness and identifying the aspects of this relationship that foster academic achievement and social-emotional health through an understanding of trauma and its impact on school climate and classroom engagement.
Sharing Our Stories

Putting Together A Plan
Integrating the trauma-informed and culturally responsive approach, this content engages participants in hands-on activities to help them start designing classroom rules and lesson planning using best practices for engaging students using a whole-child approach that supports whole-school approaches for improving school climate.
Caring for Self
Focused on educator’s professional and personal wellbeing, this content provides strategies for managing stressors that impact educators universally and specifically explores specific reasons and tools for burnout and secondary traumatic stress in urban, suburban, and rural communities.
