    This description of Abby Falik's work was prepared when Abby Falik was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2014.
    Abby Falik is preparing a globally-minded generation of leaders by embedding the bridge year into the American higher education system, transforming the way young people transition into college and approach higher education and careers. By partnering with universities to both favor and develop transformative “bridge year” apprenticeships in developing countries, Global Citizen Year is unlocking students’ potential as global citizens and agents of change, while also addressing the rising cost, questioned relevance, and civic isolation of the American higher education system.
