What do cross-cultural workers do and how are they able to communicate appropriately and effectively with people from other cultures?

In 2017 Global Interaction is running a Global Experience program that will enable participants to experience important aspects of being a cross-cultural worker at one of Global Interaction's team locations (in South East Asia and Africa in 2017)
The Global Experience will teach participants skills for growing language capacity and cultural understanding, as well as give them a real hands-on experience under supervision for six weeks growing language capacity, beginning to learn another language and investigating the culture of a host community in one of the communities in which we work. The Experience will also give participants exposure to the working life of cross-cultural workers in that context so that they can know more of what this work entails.
Global Experience is an accredited tertiary degree or master's level unit, in which fee help is available for the course component through Whitley College the University of Divinity.

Upon completion of the program, you may be eligible to receive a Graduate Certificate in Divinity.
To participate in the Global Experience Program participants will need to be available to undertake the Culture & Language Preparation unit, which will be run from 30th January - 3rd of February 2017 at Global Interaction in Hawthorn, Vic.
