Listen First & Bridge Chapters

We encourage conversations that prioritize understanding the other from coast to coast with local chapters in schools and communities. Our chapters promote the Listen First virtue in their local contexts to mend the frayed fabric of America and bridge divides. Our school chapters also foster a new generation of Listen First Leaders.

Bridge Chapters on College Campuses

College chapters are developed and operated as a joint venture between Listen First Project and student-led BridgeUSA. BridgeUSA, begun in 2016 at Notre Dame and Colorado, has had remarkable success promoting rich conversations among students of widely diverse perspectives and expanding its footprint across the country to many of the schools below.
