  • RPCVs can present the culture of their host country
  • Presentations can be as interactive as possible:
    • photos,
    • local foods
    • clothing
    • fabrics,
    • national music, etc.
  • You can have a frank discussion with the students and answer questions about what some of the country's/community's real needs are.
  • Students can work on some sort of service project tied to your presentation. The teacher or leader of the group you present to would coordinate such an activity.
    • Teacher/group have contacted group(s) of children in a presenter's country of service to communicate or receive/exchange these packs although that's not required.
    • The children have made little "Peace Packs," knapsacks with their handprints in paint, a note of peace, and some school supplies and basic dental hygience stuff and send them to the country they learned about.
    • It's always fun, and the kids are super curious.
  • Speak about your service, and let the Newsletter Editor, know about it:
    -- Submit pictures
    -- See yourself listed here and in Pacific Waves.
