About the Event

The Online Cross-Cultural Mentor-Mentee Program pairs current and retired American K-12 teacher mentors with Asian college students who came from Asia to introduce students to American norms and culture. Students will also share their cultural norms and cultures with the teachers. This will help students to adjust to school smoothly and help teachers become aware of Asian cultures to better understand Asian K-12 students in their classrooms and other Asian people in America. The discussion topics per session will be provided by PCCU and the results of the program will be evaluated. Eight one-hour sessions per 6 months will be conducted including a training/orientation session for the participants.
