Our signature program – CultureALL in the Classroom – offers over one hundred workshop options for exploring more than fifty different cultures. These workshops are designed to expand the depth of curriculum in a variety of academic subjects, and many connect to more than one. Each workshop offers an activity, an artifact, a personal story, and a metaphor to provide a deeper understanding of the culture.
You should start by browsing through our workshop pages to identify what workshop(s) you might like to bring to your school. Then contact us by phone at 515-273-8569 or by e-mail, and our staff will work with you to find a date and time that will work for you and your selected CultureALL Ambassador(s). From there, we will work with you to prepare your classroom and students for your scheduled workshop(s).
CultureALL prefers to limit workshops to a single class (about 25 students, maximum.) Some CultureALL Ambassadors can also do presentations for larger groups and assemblies, but these are likely to be more performance-based, with less hands-on interaction than provided in a classroom workshop.
Some of our CultureALL Ambassadors have other jobs, and some live outside of Des Moines, so it may not always be possible for us to schedule a specific workshop on the day you want it. If that happens, our staff will work with you to find an alternative date, or suggest some alternative workshops with another Ambassador who would be available.
The average workshop fee is $150 for the first hour and $50 for each additional hour. For example, if you wanted one Ambassador to do a 45-minute workshop for 4 four different groups of students (100 students, 3 hours total), the cost would be $250. Some workshops have additional costs if for mileage (if the Ambassador has to travel a significant distance to you school), or for supplies (if the Ambassador is providing food or other special items.) All costs will be included in your booking contract.
