The latest from Milwaukee...
Since my last post our group has attended a Peace Rally for Youth, Arab World Fest, and have taken a tour of a public swimming pool to learn more about water systems and how the team there keeps the facility clean (afterward I allowed the students to enjoy open swim for a few hours).
This Friday we are going to Irish World Festival and coming up next week I am lining up a speaker who will discuss the subject of Immigration Rights because next Friday is Mexican World Festival. Also next week we are going to visit the Water Treatment Plant here in Milwaukee.
We are transitioning out of the summer phase of the program and introducing students to the Fall activities schedule, which will include a Mock Study Abroad Adventure as well as language classes.
I will be able to teach Beginning Spanish but I will need to find an Arabic and French or Mandarin teacher.
Also I hope to have the International Students from Cardinal Stritch University become involved with teaching the youth about their countries while they become accustomed to the US.
That's it for now,
