For the first time Guyana has been chosen by the Adjutant General of Florida Major General, Emmett Titshaw, U.S Army Cadet Command and the U.S Embassy in Guyana’s Military Liaison office, to host the cultural Understanding and Language (CULP) Programme this month.
According to a US Embassy press release, CULP seeks to build a foundation to support understanding, cohesion, and meaningful partnership between the next generation of U.S. and Guyanese military officers.
The programme which is planned for 34 cadets and three instructors, comprised of soon-to-be commissioned Florida National Guard (FLNG), will be held between July 5 and 27.
The programme, which has been conducted by 1,200 cadets in over 40 countries in 2012, gives US Cadet Officers an opportunity to help develop the skills needed to support global operations.
The three week event will allow cadets the opportunity to be immersed in foreign cultures as they learn more about how others around the world view the United States, and in the process, improve their ability to operate more effectively in international environments.
Some of the activities that will be headlining the programme are humanitarian service with the host population, military-to-military training, and education on the social, cultural, and historical aspects of the community.
During the CULP Program in Guyana, U.S. cadets will live, work and have cultural exchanges with fellow Guyana Defence Force cadets, as well as other elements of the GDF.
