The BRIDGES Program at SUNY Orange is a comprehensive three-year suite of noncredit workshops for anyone interested in learning and improving the basic skills of adulthood. Beginning Fall 2020, students have the flexibility to choose full time or part time enrollment, based on their needs.
Workshops cover areas of common interest to adults, especially young adults, but fall outside traditional matriculated programming. Workshops include:
- Building social and professional relationships
- Time Management
- Money Management
- Setting Up Your Living Space
- Setting Boundaries
- Career Planning - Identifying your skill set and strengths
- Job Readiness - Preparing to uses your skill set
- Workplace Communication
- Self Advocacy & Citizenship
- Health & Wellness - Self Care
- Stress Management
Workshops are offered at three levels – Introductory (100), Intermediate (200) and Advanced (300). Each semester, students may enroll in any of the seven workshops available to their level and in the appropriate sequence. For example, new students begin in the fall at the 100 level. Upon completion of the fall workshop, students may continue in the spring in subsequent workshop. Students who complete 100 level workshops may continue to 200 and 300 level workshops. Students who complete all workshops at all three levels earn a certificate awarded to them at the college’s annual commencement ceremony. Visit our List of Workshops page for more information.
