BRIDGEs in Belize (Building Relationships for International Development, Growth & Education in Belize) connects teachers in the U.S. and Belize.
The mission of BRIDGEs in Belize is cultural exchange, respect, and appreciation, the enrichment of the experience of all teachers, and improved educational opportunities for all children.
BRIDGEs (Building Relationships for International Development, Growth & Education) in Belize connects teachers in the U.S. and Belize to provide opportunity for cross-cultural educational exchange. In response to requests by individual village schools, North American educators travel to Belize to offer educational workshops to Belizean educators. Belizean educators provide North Americans the opportunity to learn the beauty and wisdom of the Maya culture and to experience a way of life very different from their own. The result is an empowered and invigorated educator base and an increased global-village perspective for all involved.
