THE PROGRAM

The Hangout Bridges Program forges relationships between high school students of different ethnic, racial, social, economic, cultural and religious backgrounds. It challenges ideas that breed intolerance so students can appreciate diversity, build on commonalities, learn to resolve conflicts in non-violent ways and promote working together for the well-being of their communities.
