Sunbridge International Collaborative is a 501c3 non-profit organization that was co-founded by Han Fang from Beijing, China and Bart Eddy from Detroit, Michigan USA in 2012.
Ms. Han is a graduate of Tsinghua University with a Masters Degree in Landscape Architecture, while Mr. Eddy is a long time educator and co-founder of Detroit Community Schools. The Sunbridge International Collaborative is an “experiential learning organization that allows chil- dren, young people and adults to discover their sense of mission and vision within the global community.”
The Sunbridge International Collaborative cooperates with the Brightmoor Makers, Detroit Community Schools, the University of Michigan Stamps School of Art and Design and the Ross School of Business to operate youth employment and entrepreneurship programs for under- served youth; while in China, Sunbridge has conducted workshops for hands on learning for children, parents and teachers in Beijing, Chengdu and Guiyang. Sunbridge-China has worked with the China National Children’s Center and is currently represented by a team of colleagues from Tsinghua University. Conversations are taking place at the K-12/University levels to create and operate ‘Maker Spaces’ innovative labs that will be open to participants of all ages in both the USA and China in early 2016.
The Sunbridge International Collaborative is dedicated to awakening children and young adults throughout the world to their sense of ‘calling’ in life, and we are inviting our friends and supporters from around the globe to join us in this transformational movement.
