Hosted in collaboration with Korean War Veteran’s Association (KWVA), Educational Divide Reform (EDR), and Andover Public Schools, “Bridging Generations” was an event that highlights the shared history between the United States and Korea, and reminds us of the principles of civil liberty and freedom our democracies value so highly.

This program allowed both American and Korean students to experience each other’s cultures, share educational similarities and differences, and make long-lasting friendships.
