What We Do:
Mariposa and Bridging Brothers are programs of the Napa County Office of Education. Our mission is to build community and cultivate the leaders of tomorrow. Our vision is to break gender barriers and empower youth to develop self-love, team work, and lead healthy lives free of violence, substance abuse, oppression, and achieve higher education and leadership. To succeed in this, we facilitate small volunteer-run groups of 5-20 students in Napa schools including the non traditional high schools such as Camille Creek and Juvenile Hall.
