Classroom Visits

Explore the World

The FIUTS "Explore the World" series is a customized after school program which pairs international students from the University of Washington with local elementary schools.

Each week for the duration of the program, a FIUTS volunteer prepares a lesson about his or her home culture which includes a brief introductory lesson, followed by a short language lesson, and ending with cultural activities. The presentations vary from week-to-week as presenters from different backgrounds come every week, creating a new, personalized and interactive curriculum throughout the quarter.

To register your school for the series, contact Tom Lang, the FIUTS Education Programs Coordinator.

Global Ambassador Day

The FIUTS Global Ambassador Day program brings University of Washington students into K-6 classrooms for a day. Each classroom hosts a different FIUTS volunteer, who gives an interactive presentation about his or her home country and culture.

The presentations are developed and produced by student volunteers with the guidance of FIUTS staff. Classroom teachers prepare their students with discussions on history and background information related to the country that the Cultural Ambassadors represent.

To Host a Global Ambassador Day at your school, contact the FIUTS Education Programs Coordinator.



The FIUTS Classroom Visits Programs are made possible with generous support from the Center for Global Studies, Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies.

FIUTS offers specialized classroom programs that support our mission of connecting international students to the local community. Contact the Education Programs Coordinator for more information.
