Olson Bridge Academy has a deep and active commitment towards the development of persons in four areas of impact: that of the individual, in their interpersonal relationships, in their participation in the community, and in the universe. This is the reason why it is very important for us to generate initiatives and create bridges of collaboration to be able to support this transformation.
Studies show that cooperative behaviors are contagious and spread from one person to another. When people feel benefited by acts of kindness, they help another person who perhaps they did not plan to do so earlier, thus creating a cascade of cooperation that influences many more people in our social environment.
Therefore, Olson Bridge Academy has the Kindness Epidemic Program where through activities within the educational environment and community events, the seeds of empathy, compassion and respect are planted throughout the community (students, families, staff, society).
We currently have a scholarship program where we support low-income families. We do this with a sense of social commitment that fills us with joy..Depending on the case, the percentage with which we support our students may be up to 100% scholarship.
Once we start activities in our new facilities, we will start the "Catarina District" social project, based on the experience of successful projects such as the Distrito Carolina in Saltillo, Coahuila. We seek to generate high-impact sustainable projects for the social and economic well-being of the community, by creating bridges of collaboration between neighbors, private initiative and government. In this way we will be able to actively impact the quality of life of families in the neighborhoods surrounding our school.See more
We are aware of the importance of taking care of our environment, therefore, in our facilities we minimize polluting materials and seek to create a healthy environment.
First of all, the facilities of Olson Bridge Academy are built with environmental engineering, minimizing the urban footprint. Some characteristics of our architecture and environmental engineering are: compacted earth walls, solar panels, gray and black wastewater separation, among others.
Likewise, our space is free of PET, aluminum and Styrofoam, thus avoiding the use of disposable containers. At our events, no disposable plates or cups are used. We have an environmental/organic garden, compost, water care, among others.
We live in a constantly growing community, so let's understand the reason for this development, analyzing what role we play here and how we contribute with creative solutions.
