BRIDGE Program

The BRIDGE Program is part of the Stevens Initiative, a public-private partnership designed to increase people-to-people exchanges between youth in the United States and the Middle East and North Africa. The program aims to increase mutual understanding between youth in middle and secondary school, and equip a generation of globally-minded youth with the skills they need to succeed in an increasingly interdependent world. After engaging in professional development, teachers engage students in virtual exchanges. By employing a variety of technologies and educational pedagogy, it will be possible for entire classes and schools to access high-quality international and cross-cultural education.

How to get involved

We are looking for middle high school educators from all disciplines interested in online learning and global education. Connect with schools from over 10 countries through online courses, global projects, and video conferences with the BRIDGE program! Please visit our website and/or email us at bridge@iearn.org.
