The Bridges Workplace Connection has resources to support your next tour of a local business. Business Tours help students learn more about occupations within that industry and the work environment. Tours last approximate 30-90 minutes.
Bridges can reimburse schools for the cost of traveling to and from a business.
To receive reimbursement, simply have your students complete a pre-tour survey as well as a post-tour survey. You will also need to complete a tour evaluation. Then, include these forms with your Bridges travel reimbursement form to have the cost of your travel to and from the business covered by Bridges.
