Students in the Workplace

In my earlier post I shared with you a story of a local high school teacher who invited us and six of our Cultural Ambassadors into her classroom.  Click here to read that post.  That was during the month of December and today 6 of the 80 students shared their experiences with the community.  By working with Pioneer International we put a lunch and learn together for the Pioneer employees.  The students shared their reflections through art and personal writing which were very moving.  Below are a few of the art pieces.

It was a wonderful event and the Pioneer employees were able to get  a sense of what this experience did for the students.  One student said that he use to not make an attempt to reach out to students from different countries but he was now taking baby steps to change that; his family is now bringing a French student to spend a year with them.  Another student was so interested in one of our Cultural Ambassador’s story that he is planning a trip to India.

After the students presented majority of the employees stayed and spoke with the students.

As we get the video and more photos ready I will share them with you as well.
