Interested in having a global experience in the local community? Learn about what you should consider when planning and preparing for a local experience with people from different cultures and languages. Whether you are tutoring a Burmese refugee, working with undocumented families, or conducting a research project on a tribal community, building trust, understanding power dynamics, and exploring the complexities of culture shock are important for your own experience and the community with whom you will be interacting. Learn about how these experiences can be truly culturally immersive and can challenge your assumptions about your neighbors.
