How to Deliver Remote Cultural Orientation

Ideally, Cultural Orientation is meant to be delivered in-person and in a group setting. However, this may not always be possible. Various factors, such as a location of a refugee prior to their departure or safety and security considerations for both the Cultural Orientation provider and refugee may necessitate remote Cultural Orientation. In order to ensure refugees still receive critical Cultural Orientation messages in these instances, CORE recommends the following remote delivery approaches and tips. For guidance on delivering telephonic cultural orientation, visit CORE’s Telephonic Refugee Resettlement CO Guidance and Curriculum. In addition to the above guidance, CORE also released an effective practice, Delivering Effective Remote Cultural Orientation, which provides tips, guidance, and resources for delivering interactive and engaging remote Cultural Orientation.
