She expressed her pride in the NIC for pioneering this program, which encourages openness toward our neighbors, understanding of cultures that differ from our own, and compassion for those who struggle to learn English.
The Día de Amistad was a shortened version of the complete SSL program. It took the form of a multi-generational, multicultural day camp with games, songs, cultural quizzes, role-playing The Good Samaritan story, and walking the Lord’s Prayer in Spanish.
The full curriculum may be experienced in the fall by registering to join a six-week class, or encouraging your home church to host a class.
The curriculum was written by Ruth Hoffman, Joyce Carrasco, and Diep Nguyen, who will be working hard over the next months to revise the curriculum and associated documents for publication.
