Bridge Year Launches New Site in Indonesia

Princeton University’s Bridge Year Program, part of the Office of International Programs, has launched a new program site in the Special Region of Yogyakarta, Indonesia.

“We are thrilled to be able to offer students the opportunity to explore Indonesian society and culture,” said John Luria, director of the Bridge Year Program. “As with all of our program locations, volunteers in Indonesia are engaging in service work, studying the local language and immersing themselves in the local community.”

Bridge Year is a nine-month, tuition-free program that enables incoming students to begin their Princeton experience with a year of public service abroad.

The seven students who are part of the inaugural Indonesia cohort are working with community organizations addressing issues of public health, access to education, sustainable agriculture and environmental conservation.
