BRIDGES: Travel Program


BRIDGES

Sparking Connections Across Cultures

In Bridges, teens and adults alike will share new experiences, build awareness, create, and bond together through guided international travel adventures. They’ll learn to use photography, videography, and creative writing to share their stories and become agents of change.

A joint program of Workshops With Purpose and Camp Fire Central Oregon

 

We have found that instilling a sense of wonder and appreciation for other cultures through international travel is one of the most powerful ways to change our world for the better. We become wiser, and profoundly expand the limits of our thinking, when we step out of our cultural comfort zone and connect with people who, at first, seem different.

 

In Bridges, teens and adults alike will share new experiences, build awareness, create, and bond together through guided international travel adventures. They’ll learn to use photography, videography, and creative writing to share their stories and become agents of change.

 

Through travel together, as equal partners, team members experience the powerful transformation that stepping into the shoes of a different culture can inspire. We also learn first hand about the tough issues that affect people in other parts of the world. Not only do we learn about these issues, but we learn to use our unique vision, and skills, to affect positive change.

 

Our guiding mentors are professional photographers, videographers, and storytellers. They’ve led expeditions throughout the world and are ready to engage a new generation of leaders.

 

Our primary goal is simple: To inspire tolerance, compassion, and personal growth through cross-cultural experience and immersion. To hone participants’ creative skills for sharing their experiences, and broaden their ability to express what they discover about themselves and the world we live in.
