Peek Into World Languages Day
Showcasing careers and services that value language expertise, World Languages Day is a dynamic event that connects high school and college students with leaders in international commerce, social services, and governmental agencies to help students create a “map” from language success to a successful future.
Continuing to grow with each event, CULTR is excited to announce World Languages Day draws hundreds of students from throughout the southeast region with prominent organizations, professions, and representatives.

CULTR invites you to participate in World Languages Day by sharing the story about how globalization and language proficiency interact in your organization to further business goals, reach international markets and make a difference in an increasingly interconnected world. This invitation is extended only to select organizations with a reputation for global initiatives. By sending representatives to World Languages Day or sponsoring activities, your organization has the opportunity to impact the education of hundreds of students.
CULTR is striving to build an appreciation for global skills, language study, and cultural competency in the k-16 continuum. World Languages Day seeks to inform high school students about the importance of continuing their study of language and culture in college to better prepare them for a global economy.
We can’t do this alone. It is vital for students to hear the voices of organizations who value potential employees with language skills and cultural competence. Through an event such as World Languages Day, employers have an opportunity to guide students’ focus before they enter college and emphasize the skills they will need for success in a global economy.
