Bridges Program Director
The Bridges Program in Colorado Springs, CO, was created to reach out holistically to the many Afghan refugee families in the surrounding area. These families have many needs as they try to adapt to life in the United States. They desire to grow this program in order to meet the overwhelming needs of these families.
Approximately 80% of the Afghan refugee population in Colorado resides in the Denver metro area. Since the beginning of the Bridges Program in Colorado Springs, Bridges Colorado has had a goal of expanding into the Denver area to reach a greater portion of the Afghan diaspora. This position would be the leadership of expanding the current Bridges Program into this new location. The position is a pioneering role that will be under the guidance and in partnership with the current Bridges Colorado leadership.

You will be involved in the vision, implementation, and oversight of all areas of the program. This will include: building relationships with Afghan refugee families in the local Denver/Aurora area, coordinate volunteers, help with advocacy and recruiting for the program, and more.
