The Building Bridges Vision

The Building Bridges in Schools Program promotes mutual understanding and respect and ethical behaviour across our cultural and religious diversities to develop competent global leaders for the 21st century.



The Program builds relationships of understanding, trust and respect between students and between staff from diverse cultural, religious and social backgrounds in Melbourne and beyond.


Building Bridges fulfils its vision through facilitating safe, respectful dialogue around life and faith in small, facilitated groups and informal community-building activities with vegetarian food.


Building Bridges broke down all my stereotypes.”
