Applications Due: April 28 - Cultural Immersion Project in Puerto Rico for Ohio 4-H Professionals

April 21, 2017

The 4-H Cultural Immersion Project (CIP) is open to Ohio 4-H Educators / Program Coordinators with 2 or more years experience in their position and provides a unique opportunity to be immersed in Puerto Rican life and culture. This experience will build stronger cross cultural skills and abilities to prepare 4-H professionals to work with a wider audience of youth in their local program. Participants will experience local Puerto Rican culture and engage in several cross-cultural learning projects in the local community.

The group will be housed in a simple dorm style setting with access to kitchen facilities. An emphasis on local community interaction will be stressed through participation in local community events, host family meal opportunities, discussion groups, local agriculture and farm tours, cultural immersion challenges, and recreation.
