Through our services, participants will acquire an appreciation for other cultures and respect the differences inherent in them. Building understanding, making connections, and developing empathy among diverse populations of participants will enhance their ability to interact in a successful manner with our global community. Our services are especially effective for grade school and high school students who have little experience of global cultures and lack the resources or incentives to explore those cultures on their own.
