A Model of Culture-General Competence for Education and Training: Validation Across Services and Key Specialties
Here on CultureReady, we have a variety of resources for a wide audience, from our videos, made up largely of interviews featured in our Virtual Culture Awareness Trainers (VCATs), to information on scholarship opportunities for university-bound students, such as the Boren Awards.
Two of the most popular resources that we get asked about are SOFTS and Joint Language University.
Are you interested in taking our Virtual Culture Awareness Trainers (VCATs)? In order to access them, you need a Joint Knowledge Online, or JKO, account. This document outlines how to get one if you are a CAC-holder.
If you are not a CAC-holder, you can submit an account request to the JKO Help Desk, or you may contact the help desk at by e-mailing them JKOHelpDesk@jten.mil for assistance Monday - Friday, 7am - 11pm EST, or calling 757-203-5654.
UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, "seeks to build peace through international cooperation," and does so through numerous projects in countries around the world. Their work includes efforts involving cultural preservation, disaster preparedness, and youth empowerment, among many others. One common thread through every one of their missions, however, is intercultural dialogue.
