The primary focus and social mission of Bridge to Success is the enhancement of employment opportunities for at-risk men, women, and young adults by providing high-end interview and workplace appropriate clothing, coupled with coaching, to build self-confidence through appearance, interview preparation and sense of belonging at the workplace.

Bridge to Success is the only workforce development bridge organization of its kind serving both at-risk men, women and young adults citywide in the Chicago metropolitan area. Bridge to Success was founded in 2006 by interested Chicagoans who wanted to make an impact on poverty and employment in the metropolitan Chicago area.
