Bridge USA is about bridging the divide between differences in ideology, something that great leaders need to be able to foster. This organization was co-founded by Courtlyn Carpenter who student environmental engineering at CU Boulder. Its mission is: “BridgeUSA believes that good governance starts with constructive political discussion" Today, BridgeUSA has chapters in a variety of states at different college campuses.  Recently, Courtlyn moved to an advisory board role so she could stay involved and support the team better as it evolves.

You can listen to the full interview with Courtlyn and how this idea got started in the Students and Startups podcast miniseries on Soundcloud or on iTunes.
