Bridge fetes achievements

The Harvard Bridge to Learning and Literacy Program hosted 350 people at the seventh annual academic achievement celebration on May 21. Harvard employees from more than 40 different departments and 34 countries were recognized for their dedication to learning and academic progress. The Bridge Program offers not only English as a second language instruction, but has expanded its curriculum to include instruction on becoming a U.S. citizen, preparation for receiving a high school diploma, and a range of computer classes to narrow the digital divide.

This year, the Bridge Program placed service employees who left professional careers in their native countries to take jobs as service workers in the United States in professional internships at Schools, research institutions, and administrative offices in the Cambridge and Longwood campuses.

Speakers included custodians from various locations, a Ph.D. in neuroscience from Harvard Medical School, and a dining service worker from Harvard Business School who was placed in an internship at the Office of the Assistant to the President.
