About WORLD EXPLORERS
Cultural immersion is a unique experience that can open doors to a deeper understanding of an unfamiliar place and people. In the World Explorers program, we connect with people who live in countries around the globe to learn about daily life, language, food, fun, animals, landscapes and so much more! All this exploration and growth can be done from the safety and comfort of your own home through this virtual, but social experience.
Tuesdays & Thursdays As Scheduled
@ Virtual experience via Zoom platform
This program is facilitated virtually. Each session we learn about a new country and connect with people who live (or have lived) there. Our international guests share about their country and our participants are able to ask questions to learn about different cultures. Registration is seasonal and each country is facilitated as a stand-alone event (only register for country events in which you are interested – no need to sign up for a whole “season”). This program is OPEN TO ALL WDSRA PARTICIPANTS.

“Our cultural strength has always been derived from our diversity of understanding and experience.” -Yo-Yo-Ma
“We enjoyed the people that you brought in to talk with us from those countries about food, traditions, music, language, etc.. We have participated in a lot of programs and this is among our favorites. Looking forward to the next session!!!”
“…I was just so amazed at how many people joined and I don’t think I knew any of them, which is awesome! (it just never dawned on me that there are others with…”different”…abilities! Some talked of having been to other countries that we will be exploring. Love it!”
My favorite experience in the World Explorers program was “getting to know other cultures through real people. It made me happy to visit other parts of the world from the comfort of our living room.”
Meet the Instructors!
Aside from his role as Synergy AA Manager, Jason is passionate about traveling and international exploration. He has been fortunate enough to travel to roughly 20 countries on six continents and enjoys sharing his experiences with others. Through various volunteer projects abroad, backpacking trips, and general touring (another way of saying getting lost over and over again…) he has developed an appreciation for different ways of life and is always keen to try new foods, (attempt) to learn new languages, explore new areas and learn about history and culture. Let’s explore the world together!
