This program of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State is for two groups of 10-12 educators from all over the world. The first group of delegates are coming from Bahrain, Brazil, Burkina Faso, Japan, Kazakhstan, Philippines, Republic of Korea, Russia, Turkey, and Uzbekistan.
They will be visiting Detroit to examine Summer Camp Management.
This short, intensive program seeks to strengthen classroom teachers' and English language program administrators' ability to create and implement short-term intensive English language immersion programs and camps effectively for diverse EFL students through a professional development program which will enhance participants' knowledge and skills in designing and executing impactful immersion programs or camps in their local context.
A lot of people spend half their lives to get the opportunity to meet the people that we met in just 10 days [in Detroit]. This concentration of knowledge and resources brought me one step closer to being global.
The opportunity to welcome and work with international delegations visiting Detroit provides a very rich experience. To be engaged in this work is significant and very rewarding. The world is becoming smaller every day and Global Ties Detroit contributes greatly in building strong bridges with people and nations across the globe.
