What is the Building Cultural Bridges Program?

The Building Cultural Bridges (BCB) Program is designed to connect middle school students with their counterparts living across the world in a meaningful and impactful way. Through letter exchanges and videoconferencing sessions, students are able to discover more about culture, diversity, geography, community issues, and more while building empathy, practicing relationship building, and improving 21st-century skills. Students work on a mutually founded joint project that requires critical thinking and collaboration which they can present to their schools and communities. The BCB program provides a pathway to educational achievement and readiness, improved understanding of ethnicities, and strengthening of cultural education through authentic global interactions and project collaboration.
