Review for Bridges to Understanding, Seattle, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I worked as a mentor for students in Seattle and South Africa and have tremendous respect for the Bridges organization. What stands out for me is that Bridges makes sure that the mentors are very well prepared for their task so they know exactly how to work with the teachers and the students in the different sites. Working with the students, the other mentors and the Bridges staff proved to be incredibly enriching for me. There is a genuine care and integrity about the people involved in this organization. They teach that through sharing each other's stories, bridges to understanding span across the world. I have myself grown much closer to e.g. the Wallacedene township where I worked and hope that the digital story we made with the children makes a difference in the community. Thank you Bridges for giving me the opportunity to be part of your program.
