The Sharing My Culture Program (SMC) is a service-learning opportunity for international students to get involved in the local community by giving a 30 minute, fun and informative presentation about his or her country to local elementary school children. The presentation may include (but is not limited to) the following topics:

  • Simple words and greetings
  • Traditional celebrations
  • Historical significance
  • Physical and cultural geography
  • Special customs or traditions
  • Folk tales, songs, dances or games

SMC presenters increase global awareness by sharing their culture with local elementary school children, improve their public speaking skills, and add a service-learning activity to their resume. The SMC program coordinator will assist presenters in creating their presentation. It is possible for SMC presenters to do joint or team presentations as well.
