I enjoy volunteering my time throughout the year for non-profits in my community. Recently I volunteered to photograph the graduation ceremony for Bridge Over Troubled Water.

Bridge is Boston’s premier organization dedicated to transforming the lives of runaway, homeless, and high-risk youth through safe, supportive, and encouraging relationships and effective and innovative services that guide them toward self-sufficiency. The organization relies heavily on donations and I am happy to donate my time and the images from tonight’s ceremony.

Everyone getting ready at Bridge’s West St location. Most students decorated their caps with
photos of family, meaningful quotes and intricate artwork.

Getting ready was a group effort.

We all walked over to the ceremony location together, which was a few blocks away, and everyone lined up.

The students all had moving things to say about their experiences in life and education.

Bridge provides Boston’s homeless and runaway youth with medical and dental care, counseling, education and career development, among other services. I was so inspired by the stories of trials and triumphs, and I couldn’t help but cheer the graduates on from behind the lens as they all received their diplomas. These young men and women will do great things with their lives, all thanks to to the staff at this incredible organization.

The school board of directors had the pleasure of handing out the diplomas.
