Media Kit & Requests

Youth have answers. We just need to listen.

BRIDGES unites and inspires diverse young people to become confident and courageous leaders committed to community transformation. To that end, we amplify the voices of youth across our city. Media can request interviews with BRIDGES youth participants or staff.

Media & Interview Request Form


Guidelines for Interviewing Youth

Most BRIDGES participants are minors, so please do not approach them directly through email, social media or other forms of personal communication.

  • All minors must first obtain permission from their parent or guardian to participate in any media interviews or requests for comment
Our youth council and boards

Please submit all interview questions and/or the scope of your interview in advance so students have adequate time to prepare.

  • Students are rarely, if ever, available to give interviews on the same day you contact us. We will submit your request and questions to our youth leaders and get back in touch as soon as possible.
Bridge Builders Youth Program

Every student counts.

Young people are born with creativity and passion to lead. BRIDGES has worked with thousands of students to unlock that potential and activate new generations of leaders across Memphis.
