NewBridge Cleveland Center for Arts & Technology is a remarkable place. Our mission? We change lives!
Modeled on Bill Strickland's innovative Manchester Bidwell Corporation in Pittsburgh, NewBridge is inspired by Bill's belief that environment shapes behavior and that every human being has potential.
"Change the environment. Change the assumptions.
People are capable of extraordinary things." —Bill Strickland.
NewBridge Cleveland Center for Arts & Technology is an innovative non-profit organization that is reshaping the business of social change in Northeast Ohio. In our warm, welcoming, state-of-the-art facility located in Cleveland's Midtown neighborhood, NewBridge provides market-driven job training for unemployed and underemployed adults and hands-on, after-school arts education for high school students. Currently, NewBridge works with local health care institutions to provide Pharmacy Technician and Clinical Phlebotomy Technician training for adults, and offers after-school classes in ceramics, photography, music recording and production and digital arts for local youth. All classes are provided at no charge, and every student is regarded as an asset capable of success, whether that means finishing high school or getting training needed to secure a well-paying job.
