Project Bridge 2012-2013 Application

2012 09 05  project bridge icon2The Korea Society welcomes applications from prospective Youth Ambassadors for the 2012-2013 Project Bridge Program. This year's program marks the 20th anniversary of Project Bridge, which was created in response to the 1992 Los Angeles riots. The Korea Society, in conjunction with the Los Angeles-based Pacific Century Institute, coordinates a year-long intercultural outreach program for high-school juniors and seniors. The program selects 16 student Youth Ambassadors and two adult group leaders from New York City and Los Angeles to participate in a series of bi-weekly meetings, a weekend retreat, and a fully subsidized ten-day study tour to Korea. The program aims to cultivate future community leaders and introduce them to U.S.- Korea relations with an emphasis on cultural and racial sensitivity and a firm understanding of Korea. High-school junior or senior students attending New York City and Los Angeles public schools are eligible to apply for this program. Applications must be postmarked by October 12, 2012.

Once selected, participants meet regularly for educational workshops which focus on topics such as Korean history, language, modern society, and U.S.-Korea relations, as well as the history of race relations in the U.S. Participants gain insights into Korea, acquire leadership skills, and develop intercultural understanding. The highlight of Project Bridge is a fully subsidized ten-day study tour of Korea, which begins in late March during Spring Recess, and includes visits to numerous historical sites as well as a homestay with Korean high-school students.
