Hope Foundation looking for Asian referee for intercultural school project
Posted August 16th, 2011 - 12:13 pm by from Berlin, Germany (Permalink)
Bridging Cultures in Berlin and Brandenburg

From 29 August until the 28 October 2011 "Bridging Cultures" will be held at secondary schools in Berlin and Brandenburg. After the successful implementation of the project in 2010 and on the request of many teachers, we have decided to organize this intercultural workshop again. The two-day workshops are divided into several lessons, and deal with themes of globalization, the MDGs and key political issues of the so-called developing continents of Africa, Asia and South America. Speakers from the so-called developing countries teach in English, discuss and develop together with the students solutions for the problems of their continents. In addition, the students develop innovative and creative ideas for projects and events in Germany to raise awareness of the people.

Objectives of Bridging Cultures

Raising awareness for global relations and developmental problems
Promoting their own social skills and commitment
Development of intercultural relations
Elimination of prejudice and racism
Improving the English language of students

Target group

Pupils and students between 16 and 20 years of secondary and high schools in Berlin and Brandenburg


Interns will attend an orientation workshop upon arriving Berlin to guide them with the condition conditions and procedure.
A working timetable will be presented to all interns.
Interns will work with schools following the timetable and on workdays when schools are not visited, interns will dedicate the working hours to work with Hope Foundation at the head office to improve or adjust their class preparation.
