What Is A Cultural Activity?

Cultural Activity Ideas

  •  Doing cultural activities is a mandatory part of your program, and it is the best way for you to explore what your city, town, borough, or landscape has to offer! 


  • We define a Cultural Activity as  something that you, as the participant, are  physically doing outside of work, and that you are experiencing within the American Culture (on American soil, and/or with Americans).


  • The CCUSA Work Experience program requires that you do at least 1 cultural activitiy each week, which means that you should be writing about at least 3-4 cultural activities in your mandatory 30 day Check ins with CCUSA.

It's as easy as getting in a car and seeing where the road takes you!

​1. Get coworkers/friends together and organize an activitiy (board game, card game, or any group activity).

2. Play or watch a new sport.

3. Learn about local American culture and history by visiting museums and/or historic sites.
