BRIDGE BUILDERS

What is a Bridge Builder?

The La Crosse Area Chamber Bridge Builders Program helps those who have relocated to Greater La Crosse learn more about their new community and make connections as they settle in. We match newcomers with a Bridge Builder, a community ambassador with established personal and professional networks and a strong knowledge of Greater La Crosse. Bridge Builders and newcomers are paired based upon their shared interests, and once matched, the Bridge Builder becomes a first friend who can answer questions, make connections, and help our newest neighbors feel right at home in Greater La Crosse.

New to the area? Count on us to make the transition a little less overwhelming… and a lot more fun. Take our interest inventory, and we’ll match you with a Bridge Builder who shares your interests and can’t wait to help connect you to people and places that will help Greater La Crosse feel like home.
