Global Cultures Experience
NWLACC’S Global Cultures Experience brings Langley Middle School and South Whidbey Kindergarten students face-to-face with Native Presenters and cultures from around the world through education, music, food, movement, stories, language and art. Our free-of-charge programs are intended to supplement the classroom education and expand students’ intercultural understanding and awareness meeting district goals to bring essential global education for the 21st Century Skills.
Middle Schools ProgramThe Global Cultures Program began in 2014 in Langley Middle School. Native presenters from Brazil, Zimbabwe, Japan, Native American Lushootseed tribe, Russia, Lebanon, and Scandinavia have been invited to showcase their culture in many ways.
The South Whidbey Kindergarten students are exploring Japan and China. The program engages students in fun, hands-on activities, exposing them to basic language and cultural experience.
Our vision is to expand the Global Cultures experience to reach all students from Elementary through High School grades by 2020. For this plan to become a reality, we need your help to secure greater financial support and involvement from the community.
Intercultural understanding can’t wait!
