Program Overview

  • Building Bridges operates in regional clusters of schools of diverse backgrounds under a Regional Co-ordinator;
  • Students participate voluntarily from Year 10 or 11;
  • Students meet in five 2-hour sessions during or after school plus one full school day;
  • One teacher from each school acts as liaison with the program, responsible for correspondence, recruiting, transporting, and supervision of their students who are participating in the program;
  • A different school in each region hosts one of the six sessions;
  • Sessions include interactive activities on trust building, learning of the faith practices of the host school, a vegetarian meal, and small facilitated single-sex groups
  • Students learn from and engage with each other’s personal experiences of life and faith;
  • A Presentation evening is held at the end of each year to celebrate the students’ learning, and share this with the wider public, including parents, and community leaders.

 

Building Bridges renewed my hope for a future without prejudice.”
