For three weeks in November 2018, I am a Leave 4 Change volunteer with Discovery Indochina. Based in Hanoi, Vietnam, my mandate is to help this tourism organization gauge their strengths, needs, and opportunities to create a homestay network. My professional background is in intercultural and group programs at Vancouver Island University, Canada, where I connect students with each other and the community, primarily through recreation. We talk at length about building intercultural competency for students and staff, and I want to use this theory of knowledge, skills, and attitudes as a lens for my reflections.
