High School Fellowship

The BridgeUSA High School Civic Leadership Initiative (HSCLI) is a program that equips high school students with moderation, leadership, and critical thinking skills. The program consists of the students engaging with other peers from across the country to discuss the latest political, social, and current events and issues in a productive manner.

The initiative challenges students to interact with opposing ideas and to respond with empathy and constructive comments instead of the typical rhetoric that surrounds politics today. The initiative will teach them how to moderate, design, and lead discussions surrounding these topics both in the classroom and in their day-to-day lives.

Interested in joining the Spring 2022 HSCLI Program?

The program will be from 02/10-04/21 and will meet weekly on Thursdays from 4:00-5:00 pm MST (AZ).


The BridgeUSA HSCLI program teaches high school students the basics of constructive political dialogue through a series of workshops and trainings, complete with a final project to demonstrate their learned skills.
