dc.description.abstractAs the United States becomes a progressively diverse nation, the need for a broader knowledge base of cultures and populations is imperative for the Cooperative Extension System. The objectives of this study were to explore and learn from the benefits, knowledge gained, and change of attitudes and practices resulting from participation in programs focusing in cross-cultural experiences. This study provides an analysis of a cross-cultural immersion program coordinated by Georgia Cooperative Extension. Cross-cultural immersion experiences provide participants the experience to visit a foreign country for a period of time with the goal of assisting participants in gaining knowledge regarding a specific culture. These immersion programs help participants discover key issues, cultural differences, and basic language skills with the hope that participants will be able to better relate and interact with the targeted population upon their return.
