Cornell Bridges to Community is a nonprofit community development organization that sends students to Nicaragua over Spring Break to work on various service endeavors such as building homes, schools, and agricultural projects. On the trip, students stay in Nicaraguan communities to gain a true appreciation for their culture and way of life while promoting personal and community development.
The Cornell chapter travels to Nicaragua each year with the goal of not only physically building communities, but forging meaningful relationships and a real world understanding of our global connection.
The Cornell Bridges to Community website serves to create an alumni base to connect all Bridges members. Past, present and future Bridges members can connect here and learn more about our organization. Feel free to contact us with photos and stories from past trips.
If you are interested in learning about more about our organization, want to join us on our upcoming trip or would like to contribute to our cause, please contact CornellBridgesToCommunity@gmail.com
