Cultural Competency

Cultural Competency Training

Cultural Competency Training includes two-hour presentations, all-day and half-day workshops, and individual and group consultations. Supported by permanent and temporary exhibits and a rich assortment of educational materials, the presentations help educators develop the cultural competency they need to understand and communicate effectively, especially when dealing with students and parents of Arab and Chaldean descent. This is a program of the Arab American National Museum (AANM).

Youth Dialogue Groups

In partnership with The University of Michigan School of Social Work, the Summer Youth Dialogues on Race and Ethnicity aim to increase dialogues on race and ethnicity among high school age youth in the neighborhoods and suburbs of Detroit, the nation’s most segregated metropolitan area. It seeks to reduce racial segregation and enable young people to plan projects that create community change. High School students from African, European, Middle Eastern and Latin American descent participate in structured dialogues, community projects, and leadership activities.
