Hang Time Mobile provides educational opportunities that most Bridgeport returning citizens and youth that might not otherwise experience. The benefit of travel in this combined group manner and experiencing life outside of the inner city has proven to be immeasurable. These trips serve as true bridging of the gap between youth, police and diverse community members as they share in travel experiences together.
