At the Bridge Academy of Southwest Michigan, we believe that education is the first step to a sustainable career. We are purposefully located inside of the Michigan Works! Berrien, Cass, Van Bure facility in Benton Harbor, allowing youth to access a variety of additional resources. It’s part of what makes our public-school academy unique. These activities are designed to support and compliment the individual needs of our students.


Michigan Works! Berrien, Cass, Van Buren has a variety of services available to the general public and to our students. Below is a small list of what the team at Michigan Works! can do for our students.

  • Resume and cover letter assistance

  • Career search and finding a job

  • Food assistance

  • Tuition assistance and scholarships for post-secondary education

  • Clearing off criminal records

Our skilled staff and community partners provide the components of the vocational program. Participation in career fairs and off-site trips to businesses and educational facilities is also a regular part of our vocational curriculum. As a participant in the program, students are eligible for mentoring, internships, and job placement opportunities.
