With sustained Embassy support and creative programming, American Spaces can be lively centers for community engagement and discovery. This page contains programming ideas and plans to address U.S. Foreign Policy Goals. These topics include enduring concepts of entrepreneurship, leadership, and digital literacy, which are relevant for promoting economic prosperity, engaging civic society, and acknowledging a new educational approach that connects learning with the real world. The ideas here were inspired by the Smithsonian Content Package and were specially repurposed for Bi-national centers.  Please, feel free to adapt, remix, provide feedback, and more importantly, share your own ideas for updated programming in American Spaces.  To see the same plans and programs  sorted by Foreign Policy Goals go to MEET THE GOALS. Willing to collaborate, ask for support, give feedback? Send an email to daniela.lyra@ctjonline.com or join our facebook group.
