Cross-Cultural Education and Service

community_nicaragua

It is my belief that for a service trip to a different country to fully function, cross-cultural understanding must be strived for whenever possible. Incoming volunteers must make every attempt possible to learn and engage with the local culture before even thinking about trying to help out. So, service-learning is necessarily a mutual exchange, rather than a one-way flow of information/services. This website and the accompanying course are designed to work towards this type of cultural understanding, serving as a basis for fruitful partnerships long into the future.
