We use this opportunity to hear your stories and interests. Together, we will explore your life experiences and interests and identity what you want Iowans to know about your culture. We also will begin envisioning what your workshop(s) might look like.
CultureALL programs are happening around the community all the time. You will have an opportunity to join us at a school or community venue to observe other Ambassadors’ workshops and ask them questions.
CultureALL will work with you to create a workshop – maybe even more than one – based on your interests, passions and talents – that engage students and various age levels. All workshops must include the following basic content:
Duration of 40 to 60-minutes
Setting the stage with sights, sounds, smells and textures of the culture
An activity to engage students in hands-on learning
Artifacts representing the culture
A metaphor that provides a deeper understanding of the culture.
When you are ready, CultureALL will schedule a time for you to share your workshop with us. We will use this time to ask questions and may recommend changes to make the workshop experience more impactful for audiences.
We will work with you to develop a workshop description with learning objectives and identified curriculum connections. (Click here to see an example.) We will use this to promote your workshop to your target audience.
Once your workshop is approved, the number of hours you work is completely in your control. Typically, a client contacts CultureALL to request an Ambassador, providing options for dates and times. Then, CultureALL contacts the Ambassador to select the date that works best. If the Ambassador has other commitments or obligations, he/she is free to decline the offer.
We value your life experiences and knowledge. And we appreciate the time you put into creating workshops that engage Iowans in learning about culture. That’s why CultureALL makes arrangements for you to be paid for the workshops you present. Typically, CultureALL Ambassadors are paid $100 for the first hour and $30 for each additional hour.
