All services of the International Institute for Community Building are conducted with attention to the cultural background which frames each person. This intercultural background is discussed in the training of community interpreters and translators and in all classes. The purpose in doing this is to make everyone more aware of their cultural make up and sensitive to the cultural make up of others.
Cultural issues impact all of us from the moment we wake up in the morning until we go to sleep at night. Since culture is a bit like the air we breathe, most people do not think about it until we change our environment.
Culture is like a kaleidoscope that changes as we learn to fit into a new environment.
