The Bridge Leadership Foundation (TBLF) is a non-profit leadership and capacity development Foundation committed to building generations of young people educated to become compassionate, entrepreneurial and engaged citizens who are empowered to take responsibility for their own lives and for making a difference in the world. The Foundation seeks to address gaps in the provision of practical leadership models for young people and thus provides a platform designed to inspire, motivate, train, mentor and empower young people to achieve their best.
