The BRIDGE Program (Building Relationships in Diverse Global Environments) seeks to expand students’ perspectives through service and learning opportunities that stretch beyond their comfort zones.

“Anytime you take students out of their familiar setting, there’s a great opportunity for learning and growth,” says Director of Mission Initiatives Zach Ryan. “They’re challenged to think about issues on a deeper level.”

During the 2014-2015 school year, students traveled to Los Angeles (October), to the US/Mexico border in Nogales, AZ (January, July) and to New York City (April).
