The Bridge to Opportunity

Unlocking Skills; Raising Opportunities; Transforming Lives

We are passionate advocates for people with disabilities committed to transforming lives through employment. We help build training academies to develop employable skills which lead to rewarding Information Technology jobs and careers.  Our "Bridge to Opportunity" academies in the U.S. and Europe are enabling meaningful employment which changes lives.

What do you see?

Some see a bird that cannot fly and waddles slowly on land.     

We see a unique talent that is unparelled in the sea.  Penguins can swim 25 mph, dive to depths of 1500 ft, and thrive at temperatures of 100 below zero.  

We recognize, unlock, and enable the unique talents of people with disabilities.
