Nothing is more powerful than word of mouth marketing, and today word of mouth can be achieved through anything from public speaking to blogging to social media posts. The work of Speakers Bureau volunteers is incredibly important to the success of Bridges Middle School. Bridges has limited staff time and resources and our Speakers Bureau volunteers allow us to reach larger audiences, inspiring hundreds of people to talk about Bridges in their communities and to get involved to support the important mission of our school.
Speakers Bureau parent volunteers will attend events and speaking engagements on behalf of Bridges Middle School to speak about the school’s mission and the services Bridges provides students with learning differences and their families as well as ways that people can get involved to help.
