The Baltimore City Bridges program began in 2013. Baltimore City Bridges young adult referred to the local office by schools assigned by the Baltimore City Public Schools’ Central office (see below).  This Bridges office also serves clients of the Social Security Administration’s Ticket to Work program.  To learn if you qualify for the Ticket to Work program please visit

Bridges staff members, Youth Employment Specialists, work with young adults individually and in groups to identify career goals, develop interviewing skills, connect with employers, create a résumé, apply for jobs, get a job, and succeed in a job. Employer Representatives work closely with each young person, providing instruction, guidance, and mentoring that increases confidence, builds character, and enhances professionalism.
