Meet your global neighbour! Global Awareness is an educational program designed to promote multi - cultural understanding and appreciation in the classroom.  If you are interested in sharing your culture with American children, Global Awareness is the perfect opportunity to satisfy your own interests and also give something to schools in your local American community.

At this time of year shopkeepers aren't the only ones getting ready for the holidays.  Teachers are thinking ahead to the holidays and the celebrations in their classrooms.  Teachers welcome a visit from Global Awareness au pairs during the holiday season, and are interested in "Holiday Celebrations Around the World".  Au pairs enjoy sharing  their country's traditions and often have display items to bring into the classrooms. 
Many au pairs build display boards, others bring in recipes to share and holiday food items for the children.  One of the Global Awareness teams in Connecticut will, this Christmas, bring in holiday activities and foods, and the U.S. students will do the same.  The children will learn about South Africa, Thailand, Germany, Costa Rica and Brazil, and the au pairs will learn about Thanksgiving and the traditional American Christmas.

This is the perfect time to get involved with Global Awareness! -
Contact your Community Counselor today and let them know that you are interested.  Your counsellor will give you all the information and will help you with materials you may need for presentations
