Office of International Services Offers Culture Corps

The Office of International Services has recently received a lot of requests for international volunteers to share their countries with local school children at various events in the Raleigh area. These events are a unique way to learn more about the American school system, interact with Americans in the Raleigh community and teach others about the place you call home!

Each country is represented by volunteers stationed at country-specific tables located around the school and the children rotate in small groups from table to table to learn about the world. Pictures and cultural artifacts are wonderful things to bring with you. OIS can help with printing and has some cultural items for use at school events. Transportation is always provided by OIS and each event is open to volunteers from all countries unless otherwise noted.
