5 What is the BRIDGE Act? BRIDGE is an acronym for “Building Resourceful Individuals to Develop Georgia’s Economy”. Ensures that Georgia’s 6th -12th grade students are aware of available career and postsecondary education options. Your school can use the Georgia Career Information System (GCIS) and Georgia Career Information System Junior (GCIS Junior) to fulfill the requirements of the BRIDGE Act. © 2014 Georgia Career Information Center, Division of Student Affairs, Georgia State University and its licensors.
