Bridge to Employment: Preparing Youth for Brighter Futures

Today's Top Reads Close

Since its launch in 1992, the Johnson & Johnson Bridge to Employment initiative has helped 14- to 18-year-olds pursue education, excel in academics, and broaden their career aspirations. Over 75 Bridge to Employment sites have been established in disadvantaged communities on six continents. The program aims to increase the number of students who enroll in higher education as well as increase the number of students pursuing health or science careers.

Through academic enrichment activities, and opportunities for career readiness and higher education exploration, Bridge to Employment students are mentored and inspired to elevate their career aspirations by exposing them to various careers in the health industry. BTE also helps students to achieve their full potential through along with building their self-esteem, self-discipline and interpersonal skills.

Johnson & Johnson employees are actively involved in all program aspects, from program design to community partner selection. Each partnership includes a local Johnson & Johnson operating company, a high school or institution of higher education, and a community organization. Once partners are engaged, 35-50 students in their last three years of secondary school are selected for the program.

Johnson & Johnson partners with FHI 360’s National Institute for Work and Learning to manage the initiative globally and assess the impact of the program. Currently, four new programs start each year, with more than 16 programs operating at any given time. To date, more than 4,000 students have graduated from the program.

Understanding that educated and engaged youth are at the core of sustainable development, Johnson & Johnson aims to enact sustainable and long-term community impact.
