In this project we are creating an experiential education program to help schools grow strong intercultural understanding in their students. These capabilities are a requirement of the Australian curriculum, but there is currently no program that covers them comprehensively.
Interserve’s CultureConnect team brings 165 years of cross-cultural experience, as well as a track-record in equipping church leaders and school chaplains to engage effectively in intercultural communities.
In partnership with expert educators and curriculum developers, we are working to create a readily accessible program that can be run in a variety of contexts – beginning with mid-primary and adapting as needed to older or younger children or adults. It will be ideally suited to delivery by chaplains, giving students natural access to further help in addressing the issues and questions they personally face.
