MatchBridge is a youth employment program focused on placing young people in jobs and internships that enable work-based learning.  MatchBridge creates pathways for youth to gain early work experiences so they will become financially secure as adults.

The program coaches MatchBridge participants throughout the job search process, helping them gain exposure to careers and a positive future. Not only does this help them build professional skills, confidence and a stronger work ethic, it also builds motivation to complete high school and go on to college or other types of education.
