Global Citizens Network Expanding Local Cultural Opportunities

New York, NY (August 14, 2012)  – Global Citizens Network (GCN) in collaboration with its partner organization, Intercultural Student Experiences (ISE) is happy to announce the expansion of three new programs in the Twin Cities area (Minneapolis & St Paul, MN).

La Conexión de las Americas (formerly Resource Center for the Americas), due to funding difficulties, has transitioned the following three programs to GCN:  Spanish Language ClassesCoffee Hours and Movie Nights.

Since 1992, Global Citizens Network has been providing international and domestic short-term travel programs that emphasize intercultural understanding and service learning. By expanding these local, cultural programs, GCN offers additional opportunities for individuals to gain intercultural understanding and connections.

GCN plans to hold the fall language classes in the former La Conexión facilities (3019 Minnehaha Ave, Suite 20, Minneapolis, MN 55406) using the same curriculum and corps of teachers.  The Coffee hours and Movie Nights are also scheduled to resume in the fall.
