Diversity Party – Egypt

Members engaging in Good Character & Citizenship by learning other cultures.

Members engaging in Good Character & Citizenship by learning about world cultures.

The Mount Vernon Boys & Girls Club program Youth for Unity came to a close with another fun Diversity Party. This month we studied the country and culture of Egypt, past and present. Members were most fascinated by the types of food eaten in Middle Eastern culture. Each member was given samples of flat bread, dried fruits, nuts, honey, dates and figs. Over the last few months, members learned about many other cultures in the world and compared and contrasted it to their own. They have also learned how biases and discrimination arise, and how we can stand up against them whenever we see them in our community and society.
