Building Bridges Mentoring Program Honored

The Building Bridges Mentoring Program was honored twice this spring. LifeBridge Health received an Excellence in Mentoring Award from the Maryland Mentoring Partnership, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the advancement of youth mentoring.

“The Excellence in Mentoring award honors Maryland’s finest examples of helping people achieve their potential," says Mike Stone, manager of corporate partnerships and training, Maryland Mentoring Partnership. "LifeBridge Health has done an awesome job."

Building Bridges also received a Volunteer Award for Outstanding Service from Cross County Elementary School yesterday. Other honorees at the Cross Country volunteer award ceremony included C.H.A.I., MECU Fallstaff, Jewish Volunteer Connection, Experience Corps, the Cross Country P.T.A., and the Cross Country Chess Club.
This is the second year for the Building Bridges Mentoring Program. Sinai and Levindale employees have partnered with Cross Country Elementary School (now K-8), and Northwest has partnered with Windsor Mill Middle School.
