Critical Thinking | Problem Solving
The ability to think clearly and rationally about what to do or believe is a skill we equip our fellows with at TBP. At The Bridge program, you are encouraged to think beyond the norms of your background, race, ethnicity, religion, stereotypes and mental models. You are ignited to look into the depths of your mind through deep reflections to acknowledge a persistent problem or trouble that you are passionate about in your community and the world at large. We stir you to unearth possible sources and causes of these problems and BUILD insightful and near perfect solutions to solving them. See the BUILD in a BOX model.
Data and Decisions | Communicating for Impact
21st century leaders need to be able to make informed decision. Informed decisions are made by effectively analyzing data and drawing insights from them. By analyzing data, industry leaders and entrepreneurs are able to tackle real world problems with a lot more accuracy and credence. At TBP, we teach this skill.
However, that is not enough. Problem solvers need to be able effectively communicate their findings to the appropriate stakeholder. Be it investors, managers or government parastatal. Communicating for Impact | Data & Decisions module is designed to equip TBP fellows with these skills.
Case studies | Practice
It is not all theory at TBP. Our fellows are tasked with identifying pressing needs in their immediate environment, usually one they are most passionate about and interested in tackling. They develop case studies of their chosen challenge, get data, analyse it and make informed decisions on how best to tackle these problems and provide practical solutions.
We coach our fellows for future opportunities. We find and send our fellows out for internships in social, government and corporate firms as it may align with their interests and career aspirations. We have had some of fellows intern with Snerttrap (A fashion school), ALA (African Leadership Academy) and many other institutions. See our internship page.
