Bridge Builders can be people, institutions, organizations, or businesses who want to connect with others to improve the community or share similar interests.
Starting with ideas from Envision Golden Valley, Bridge Builders have planted seeds for several initiatives that are blossoming today (see box at right). Bridge Builders provides support and encouragement for community members to share their ideas and learn how to jump in and make something happen.
Bridge Builders, where every connection
brings people together, every good idea is a
"small spark" that causes big things to happen,
and every gathering is a party!
