Participate

The best and easiest way to participate is to join us for one of our many events.  We have something for everyone: music, visual art, performance, dance, community events, and social gatherings.

The Bridge PAI relies on the incredible support of volunteer fellows to help us put together our programs and events. We actively seek driven individuals who can commit time and energy to assist at various levels in presenting our message and work to the community. Hours may vary depending on our program schedule
