About AJB


Atlanta Junior Bridge, Inc. is a non-profit corporation formed to bring bridge to Atlanta’s youth.   Funded by private and corporate donations, Atlanta Junior Bridge supplies teachers and materials to organizations which would like to offer children and young adults the opportunity to learn and play bridge.  Atlanta Junior Bridge is qualified as a charitable organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, and donations to Atlanta Junior Bridge are fully tax deductible to the donor.  We will be happy to furnish a copy of our IRS Determination Letter to any donor on request.

Bridge enhances children’s analytical skills, helps to improve their academic performance and their problem solving ability by teaching them bridge.

Bridge is a unique way of fostering social interaction and teamwork among youth. Our students will develop self-reliance and enhance their social skills, while building trust and confidence with a partner. They will discover how to succeed, just as they would in any sports program. Moreover, there are no socio-economic or physical boundaries to learning bridge.

Research on school age children who learn bridge indicates that they show increased scores in math, reading, logic and comprehension. They also show improved short term memory retention.

Children will discover, in bridge, an opportunity for excellence which will be available to them all of their lives.
