Program 1

Small World Tea Hour (SWTH) gives all people from different background the opportunity to meet with each other in a relaxing environment and to learn about other cultures and traditions around the world. SWTH events are free and take place every Saturday from 7:00 to 10:00 various activities, lively music and an array of wonderful foods related to that theme. Numerous nationality organizations add flavor to SWTH through demonstrating and explaining a slice of their culture or traditions. Intercultural Training Center The Red Rose Foundation offer individualized workshops and experiential activities to help a person and his/her group improve communication across cultural boundaries. The Red Rose Foundation have designed and facilitated intercultural training programs for international and U.S. audiences. We are now highlighting this experience by forming an Intercultural Training Center to more systematically offer our training expertise to non-profits, and community organizations. To be a successful community, we design workshops to address how cultures can differ and what they can do to be successful in communicating across cultures and often overlooked points. Our sessions will be unique in that we also design the workshops to be interactive, allowing participants to practice their newly acquired knowledge and skills in a safe environment. Cross-Cultural Discussion Groups The Red Rose Foundation organizes Cross-cultural Discussion Groups for international and US Citizens. Members of these groups meet once a week to share cross-cultural experiences, personal thoughts and feelings in a relaxed atmosphere. The format of the group may vary from time to time. Examples of the topics we discussed in the past are culture shock, cultural customs, friendship/relationships, communication styles, family, aspirations in the future, etc. Past participants were from all over the world, including Asia, Europe, South America, Africa, USA , etc. By this program, a person can: - Make friends from all over the world - Expand cross-cultural understanding - Give and get support for difficulties you may have in the U.S. - Help each other to make your study abroad experience successful - Develop self-awareness of your own cultural background International Friendship Group Program New international people in Lancaster often have an interest in making friends from other parts of the world, getting involved in community activities, and learning how to more effectively interact with people from different cultures. The Red Rose Foundation seeks to meet these needs by: - providing an environment where new international people can develop friendships with people from different countries; - supporting new international people in their adjustment to the U.S. by helping them get involved in community activities and connect with other people - facilitating opportunities for intercultural learning through educational, service, and social activities. All events have no cost to participate.
