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!
