Program Eligibility

The Bridge Program is open to Harvard employees paid on an hourly basis who have completed their initial probationary period and who maintain satisfactory job performance, as well as employees of Harvard contractors (UNICCO cleaning, Restaurant Associates, Sodexho Food Services, etc.).


Contact us to schedule an appointment to register for any Bridge services. Students will need to be available for a minimum of one hour for registration and assessment.


The program is for learners of all levels, from those with no previous English experience to those looking to pass the TOEFL and GED exams, as well as who want to improve writing, conversation, computer or job-seeking skills.

Bridge staff members use assessment tools to get an accurate understanding of each student’s ability and interests and then collaborate with the student to ensure placement in the appropriate classes or services.

Information for supervisors/managers

Bridge staff work with supervisors and managers to approve employee class schedules based on operational considerations. Supervisors/managers should contact the Bridge Program for information about referring employees, class scheduling, the approval process or any questions about your employee’s participation.
