Our Multicultural Exchange focuses on connecting students from different cultures to create shared experiences to build a more connected and resilient world. Interactive activities include hands-on art, music and science projects to cultivate cultural awareness, understanding and a global movement towards equity and diversity.
In an ever connected world, it's extremely important to be as inclusive as possible and not leave the most vulnerable communities in the world behind. In an effort to connect children all around the world to share experiences and learn from one another, Future Kind has created a platform for the exchange of ideas and experiences while creating a powerful educational and growth opportunity for the students.
6-10 year old students from the Reno-Tahoe area to connect with students in the indigenous Aché community of Puerto Barra and other communities in Paraguay. Future Kind is also working with partner non-profits in Africa and Central America.
In the 8-weeks program (classes are held once a week), students meet at the Future Kind's office at the Reno Collective (1515 Plumas St, Reno, NV 89509) and engage in a zoom video call with students at the Aché Community of Puerto Barra. Interactive art, music and science activities are guided by the Future Kind Multicultural Exchange Coordinator and a trained school teacher in Puerto Barra. The teachers facilitate all interactions and help students with their projects.
At the end of the project there will be a possibility for a trip to Puerto Barra for students and parents to meet each other.
