Building Bridges is a Yale student organization that started in 2008 to involve college students in pooling education resources and capital to promote education equality and improve other social issues. Our summer project 2017 gathered 50 student volunteers to teach at Hongdong Shanxi on key issues like mental health, environmental health and sex education. We will share our summer project experience and gather people's feedback through our innovative design session.
