Bridges to Understanding

Founded in 2001 by social documentary photographer Phil Borges, Bridges to Understanding connects middle and high school students in our network of classrooms around the world through curriculum-based, learn-by-doing programs. Bridge to Understanding empowers and unites youth worldwide, enhances cross-cultural understanding and builds global citizenship using digital technology and the art of storytelling. Through Bridges, students learn to tell their stories to the world and take action to solve local problems that have a global impact. Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/BridgesWorld
