Many students at Bronx Bridges High School are recent immigrants to the country. Students should join the Multicultural Club because they will learn about the various cultures in the school and have opportunities to share their own. Students in the Multiculture Club will take trips to museums and other destinations to learn about their culture and that of others. The students will participate in school trips, prepare a celebration for Black History and Asian Pacific Heritage month in February and May, respectively.
Students in this club will explore issues that affect the various cultures in the school, while creating cultural celebrations for the school community to enjoy. They will also watch videos to help them explore career possibilities and other issues related to their culture.
In the past, the Multicultural Club has organized the Hispanic Heritage Month celebration. They also visited El Museo del Barrio to celebrate Day of the Death and visited the Museum of Chinese in America to learn about immigrants and Chinese culture. They also created posters that featured important people who are representatives of the various cultures in the school.
