Chinese Bridge for American Schools

This program is now administered by the College Board.

The Chinese Bridge for American Schools is a week-long program in China for educators to start and strengthen their institution's Chinese programs and partnerships. School and district leaders are invited to attend this unique, educational trip to China as guests of Hanban (Hanban/Confucius Institute Headquarters).

The activities and itinerary of this program are tailored especially to the needs of schools and districts who are planning to start new Chinese programs and/or expanding existing Chinese language and culture programs. The focus of this trip will be on collecting knowledge about the culture, society, and education system of China and partnership-building activities, school visits, and educational workshops. Participants will learn how to start, strengthen and expand their program, make connections with other educators, and gather valuable resources.

The delegation provides an opportunity to:
