Youth Referrals

Who can be a mentee?

Bridges serves youth ages 5-17 that attend the Osage, Riceville, or St. Ansgar School districts.  Parents, family, friends and teachers can refer youth to participate in the program.  Referrals are made by filling out a Youth Referral Form.  After a referral is received, Bridges staff will follow up with parents/guardians for an intake meeting and authorization for their child to participate in the program.  Referrals may be made anonymously.

Fill out the form below to refer a youth to the Bridges program.
