Lets Meet in the Middle

For a nominal fee, the council will create for you a custom-designed program for students and professionals of all ages from around the world including people active in global relations locally. The GCWAC will immerse you in American culture and business.

GCWAC programming creates a variety of K-adult global learning opportunities. Two of many examples include the program for regional high school students who can learn about exchange programs at Northern Kentucky University and meet international students. Global trivia games for colleges and businesses are available throughout the year upon request.

For professionals, we may arrange a meeting with professional counterparts to exchange information and ideas about a specific career field. It is a mutually beneficial experience which allows everyone to learn about new ideas and opportunities that may be available to use locally or abroad.

GCWAC works well with a large variety of collaborating partners, so if your organization has a great idea for a global program, contact us.

Professional & Cultural Programming

Kazakhstan Visitors meeting with the EPA Cincinnati

Kazakhstan Visitors meeting with the Environmental Protection Agency Cincinnati

Through site visits, office meetings, panel discussions, internships, volunteering, and other experiential activities, our visitors discover the dimensions and context of their own professions in the United States, make lasting contacts with their colleagues here, and share insight about their activities at home.

On many occasions, participants experience America through cultural and outdoor activities, sporting events, overnight stays, and home hospitality. The purpose of these programs is to develop new professional networks and friendships. One-on-one interaction has the power to enhance cultural understanding and fosters peace and justice on an individual basis.

High School Visits to University

Teachers, would you like to expose your students to a college campus, college life, international students and international opportunities all at once? Set up a campus visit with our Council to Northern Kentucky University. Teachers can work directly with the GCWAC, to set up a campus tour, an international student panel, hear from an NKU Admissions Office and eat lunch in the Student Union on campus! This is a great way to get students thinking about what they are going to do after high school while exposing them to all the different international opportunities they have in their future!
