Ambassador training: it takes a village!

September 27, 2022

In September, we welcomed new Ambassadors with two full days of self-reflection, workshops, mentoring, and fun exercises to develop new workshops!

These new Ambassadors represent cultures such as Iraq, Japan, Moldova, South Sudan, Ukraine, Venezuela, Kazakhstan, and the Republic of the Congo!

In the post-training survey, the new Ambassadors wrote:

  • Before coming to this training I was scared and shy, but now I am excited!
  • Before coming to this training I thought I didn't have good presentation skills, but now I feel like I can do it with confidence.
  • I was surprised to see that Ambassador presentations can take many different forms - it is not just a stand up and present, or "sit and get" type of format.

A few current Ambassadors who have several years of experience with CultureALL also joined the training sessions to encourage and mentor the new Ambassadors as they develop workshops. Thank you, Mamta Israni, Eugene Fracek, Pragnya Yogesh, and Emmett Phillips for sharing your expertise! And for the first time, we had school teachers participate in the training. Three talented educators offered their insight and experiences: Timothy Tutt of Hanawalt Elementary, Ruby Herrera of Roosevelt High School, and Jody Konrad of Bergman Academy. The training was developed in collaboration with Lisa Rathje of Local Learning.

It takes a village, for sure!
