Intercultural Citizenship Ambassador Program
Creating Leaders for the Future
Today, Australia is amongst the world’s most culturally diverse nations. To ensure a successful social and financial future, long-term social cohesion should be encouraged through intercultural relationships and exchanges. An education that reflects this need will allow younger generations to make an effective contribution in an increasingly globalised world. Inspired by this need for increased social harmony, and informed by experience gained in its incursion education programs over more than a decade, Cultural Infusion has developed the Intercultural Citizenship Ambassador Program (ICAP), a two part, 16 session series designed to address the need for cultural harmony within our school system. ICAP aims to equip young Australians with the skills to become the future leaders of an increasingly diverse nation.
This body of work targets the General Capability of Intercultural Understanding, as set out by the Australian Curriculum Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA). In doing so, the program’s activities and subject matter touch on several other General Capabilities, including Critical and Creative Thinking, Personal and Social Capability, and Ethical Understanding. Upon completion of the program, students will have learnt skills that allow them to recognise potential cultural issues and show leadership in resolving such issues. These skills will be valuable attributes for students across all key learning areas as well as important life skills in a broader social context.
