How did BridgeUSA High School Start?

BridgeUSA High School was created in 2021 to meet the increase in political engagement in high school. We noticed that students were coming into college already polarized and decided the best way to address this was to start chapters at the high school level. Our high school chapter network was created by merging existing Real Talk and the Acceptance Project programs on high school campuses across the nation.

By including high school campuses in the mission, BridgeUSA is creating a high school-to-college pipeline that engages the next generation of leaders and teaches the value of empathy, understanding and problem-solving.
