Cross Cultural Competency/Diversity Awareness
Understanding the cultures of the youth we serve requires more than words and good intentions. The journey toward cultural competence requires the willingness to experience, learn from those experiences, and act (Haley, 1999).
Cultural competence is fast becoming a skill needed by educators to function effectively in an educational setting. Changing demographics require educators to possess this skill. By the year 2050, non-European racial/ethnic groups will make up 48% of the total US population. Self-awareness is one of the three vital ingredients in developing cultural competence. This knowledge assists individuals separate ways of thinking, believing, and behaving. The author developed the Youth Development Cultural Competence Continuum Quiz to assist educators and youth development practitioners in assessing their individual cultural competencies.

WWGC Community Based Workshops and Seminars in the USA
WWGC community-bBased workshops and seminars in the US are offered in several cities to create awareness about and advocate around issues faced by immigrant women related to domestic violence, immigration, and human rights issues.
WWGC collaborated with financial institutions to provide immigrant women with tools to understand basic financial literacy.
These workshops provide women with basic skills in budgeting and resource allocation. They also learn how to manage checkbooks and why is it important to know the financial health of their homes.
What are the symptoms of financial control, and how can one avoid manipulation? Discussing things logically and laying grounds for healthy dialogues. This project with immigrant women gave them confidence and helped them become better home managers as they begin to participate in financial decision-making and become aware of potential hazards of not complying with certain regulations in their new country.
A series of workshops were held to help women understand why credit cards can become a liability if abused without concern for interest rates and their net worth.
