Many children will not have an opportunity to travel, live and make friendships through sharing in another country. To help expand a child’s global understanding, Kids Share Workshops create meaningful sharing opportunities right at home.
Our Kids Share Workshops are taught in two cultures, creating a wonderful sharing opportunity. Children meet each other through Skype and videos. A team of volunteers travel to a partner school(s) in Central America bringing creations, stories and images from the children in Vermont. When they return, they bring back their new friends shared creations! Children learn similarities and differences about each other and marvel in the uniqueness of each culture.
Enjoy our Kids Share Interviews below and questions Vermont kids have for Guatemalan kids.
