(This amendment provides $100,000 the first year from the general fund to Bridging Boundaries International. The requested funding would help BBI continue their mission of preparing young people to improve their world, homes, schools, and communities by bringing together teenagers from diverse backgrounds through workshops and student exchange programs. In addition to furthering their mission, the grant would assist in the construction of "Diversity Park" in the Williamsburg/Gloucester/Newport News area. Diversity Park is part of an international partnership where similar parks will be constructed in Virginia, Bosnia, and other areas to promote and celebrate cultural diversity.)
