Cultural Activities In Your Community
While you're in the U.S., be sure to explore what your community (your town, state, and region) has to offer!
One opportunity that ERDT offers all participants is the Cross-Cultural Scavenger Hunt. It's a great way to get to know your community in a fun way. Turn it in by August 15 for a chance to win a $100 gift card! A winner will be drawn randomly from all submitted entries.
Your empoyer has also planned at least 2 cultural activities for you. Check your application for more details, or ask your employer or ERDT.
You should also spend your time outside of work doing cultural activities on your own. Some ideas are:
Spending time with Americans outside of work
Going to a museum
Going to a church or place of worship
Going to a restaurant to try a new kind of American food (not the restaurant where you work)
Going to a concert
Volunteering for a good cause (beach clean-up, animal shelter, feeding the homeless, speaking to kids)
Going to a sports event, rodeo, car show, air show, or race
Going to a local attraction like a fair or carnival
Going to a national or state park
Going to a shopping mall
Keep track of which activities you do, as ERDT will be emailing you later in the program to ask about it. And be sure to submit photos and descriptions of your activities at our Facebook page!
