Intercultural Competency Training

an introduction to Marshallese culture for non-Marshallese

  • Rates vary
  • East Emma Avenue

Service Description

MEI's intercultural competency training provides a general overview of Marshallese history and the US-RMI relationship, a detailed look at Marshallese culture with topics geared toward your organization's needs, and brief language instruction for important words/phrases in your area. Participants will leave with a greater understanding of the fundamental nature of collective societies and how they differ from individualistic oriented societies like the United States, an understanding of kinship groups, ties, and its connections to Marshallese lands, family dynamics, issues in healthcare and education, and an appreciation for the complexity of U.S.-R.M.I. relations and the Marshallese diaspora. MEI also offers a more traditional, humanities-based class, where students are provided with materials to review in advance and where in-class discussion is encouraged. These classes are geared more for educators and the general public. We welcome the general public, teachers, healthcare providers, social services workers, and other professionals who work with Marshallese community members, and students interested in learning more about Marshallese culture and history. Students will receive a certificate upon completion. Costs of trainings depend on size of group and length of session; fees range from $650-$1100. Our humanities-based class fee is $65/participant, though group rates may be negotiated. Contact us at info@mei.ngo for more information. Due to the pandemic, we are developing an online class option. More details this fall.
