Cultural Bridges Global brings the “i” to iLEAD through short- and long-term international student exchange programs and a variety of service trips. In addition, Cultural Bridges Global unites students of all grades from around the world through unforgettable, life-changing experiences.

Our learners have the chance to experience worldwide cultures in an authentic way, leading to exciting opportunities and lifetime friendships. Through Cultural Bridges Global, a group of learners and their parents have given up their spring breaks to bring Backpacks Full of Hope to families facing inadequate living conditions due to the devastating effects of hurricanes in Puerto Rico.

“At our evening reflection, everyone commented on how moving the day was and how connected we all felt to each other ⁠— those we were helping and the world community ⁠— and how inspired we all felt.”
