Portlandia’s Bridge to the Future mentoring program builds strong relationships, creates connections for the present and future, and provides mentors who can provide coaching and support for women in college who are preparing for a career and the next step in their lives.

Partnering with Portland State University’s Center for Women’s Leadership, our Bridge to the Future matches Portlandia members with college juniors or seniors who are alumnae of the National Education for Women’s Leadership of Oregon (NEW), the award-winning women’s development program. This program educates and encourages outstanding college women to develop paths towards leadership.
