iDialogue develops programs to address issues of cultural bias and isolation amongst students of diverse communities around the world. We also implement projects to address a variety of issues in developing areas centered around medical support, education, water supply and community development. We emphasize the role that cross-cultural interpersonal communication plays in ensuring sustainable globalization.
We offer a unique solution of highly effective educational practices and provide a framework for communication that creates bridges between radically different cultures. We facilitate youth empowerment through educational tools, across diverse social, demographic, and economic backgrounds.
The ultimate lesson is to make young people aware that change is not initiated or led solely by “authority figures;” that it takes a whole host of people (including young people) to make a difference in our communities, and to empower youth to become self-directed agents of change. Through our program children, youth, and adults alike learn to create positive social change by engaging in conscious critical thought and action that examines assumptions, reactions, and outcomes.
Our world is shifting to become a more diverse and complex place, and the next generation is faced with the challenges of helping one another to end prejudice and injustice. Despite our widely globalized society, the stifling boundaries of cultural misunderstanding and hatred still cut and divide people around the world. We are still plagued with war, starvation and poverty from Africa to North America, and everywhere in between.
