Inspiring Curiosity Through Intercultural Learning

Inspiring Curiosity Through Intercultural Learning

This year, AFS-USA will be participating in Global Leadership Week, a conference that brings together administrators, teachers, nonprofit leaders, and students to inspire advocacy in global education. This weeklong conference (April 25-29th) is free to the public with the primary objective of connecting leaders in global education to encourage dialogue and promote resources to foster global competency.


AFS-USA will be hosting a virtual event that will demo an eLearning tool to foster global competency through Intercultural Learning. By exploring different topics, Culture Trek: Classroom Connections, will challenge students to think critically about pressing world issues and the important role of youth in promoting peace. Participants will be provided curriculum resources, lesson plans, and links to relevant online platforms in order to successfully embed global learning into classroom studies throughout the school year.

The session, Inspiring Curiosity Through Intercultural Learning, will be hosted onThursday, April 28th at 2:00 PM EST. To register for this webinar, click here.
