K-12 Outreach: Culture Boxes

The LAII is pleased to announce that it is partnering with the Instituto Cervantes of Albuquerque and the National Hispanic Cultural Center to develop Culture Boxes to support global competency and cultural proficiency among K-12 students. The Culture Boxes consist of hands-on materials and supporting curriculum to enhance multicultural education.

Countries currently under development include Colombia, Cuba, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Peru, and Spain. The Culture Box program is currently being piloted in select schools and will be released to the public in Fall 2016. Below is an example of a culture box.
