Silicon Valley Youth (SiVY) Bridge places a high priority on protecting your privacy.
Silicon Valley Youth Bridge (SiVY Bridge) is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization which offers free after school programs, clubs, events and other opportunities for youth to learn and play bridge.
SiVY Bridge was founded in 2013 and, in its first three years of operation, has exposed hundreds of youth to the game of bridge. Starting out with after school lessons and monthly events, SiVY has expanded to now also offer Summer Camp, Mentorship Programs, (Grand)parent/Child Duplicate Games, Casual Fridays, High School/Collegiate Championships, and Sponsorship to the Youth North American Bridge Championships (YNABC).
Bridge offers many academic and social benefits for young players. These have been confirmed by research and similar programs in other parts of the country.
By providing an accessible, well-structured, and fun way to learn the game, the goal of the SiVYBridge program is to inspire the next generation of bridge players on the San Francisco peninsula and surrounding areas
SiVY Bridge, a part of the Center for Bridge Education headquarted in San Francisco, is working together with the American Contract Bridge League (ACBL), Palo Alto Unit 503 and Santa Clara Valley Unit 507 of the ACBL.
