For third straight year, Young Cultural Ambassadors program builds multicultural understanding and appreciation SAN JOSE, CA – Two elementary schools in Santa Clara County hosted a delegation of students, parents, and educators from China as part of an exchange program created by the Multilingual Education Services Team of the Santa Clara County Office of Education (SCCOE) and the Chinese Society of Education. In its third year, the Young Cultural Ambassador Program consisted of 130 students, plus about 50 parents and teachers who visited two different county elementary schools in a two week period. Students had classes together, ate together in the cafeteria, and played together during recess to gain a better mutual understanding of their various cultures. On Jan. 24, a delegation visited Santa Rita Elementary School in the Los Altos School District. The visit began at 8 a.m. and lasted until 2:45 p.m. The visit culminated with a Chinese cultural performance that began at 12:50 p.m. On Feb. 3, another group visited Katherine R. Smith Elementary School in the Evergreen School District, where they toured the 21st Century Classroom at Katherine Smith between 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. "It has been a great joy to witness the excitement, pride, and amusement of the young cultural ambassadors from China and the students in San Jose," said Dr. Yee Wan, Director of Multilingual Educational Services for the SCCOE. "Hearing the students from San Jose wanting to visit another country and to learn another language reinforces our purpose of promoting global education and 21st century skills."
