The Novogratz Bridge Year Program is excited to offer opportunities for in-person programming in Bolivia, India, Indonesia, and Senegal. Unfortunately, due to continued government polices of “zero tolerance” around COVID-19 in China, in addition to significant restrictions on the entry of foreign nationals into China, Bridge Year programming in Kunming, China, has been suspended for 2022-23.
Bridge Year currently collaborates with communities in Tiquipaya, Bolivia; Kunming, China; Udaipur, India; Yogyakarta, Indonesia; and Dakar, Senegal. Within each community, Princeton works with a carefully selected on-site partner that has a history of running meaningful and engaging service-learning programs with a strong track record for managing student health and safety.
While the core program components are the same across all Bridge Year locations, each community provides unique opportunities for participants. The specific languages studied, the types of community organizations with which students engage, and the enrichment activities in which they take part, all vary depending on the program location.
