The Cooperative Agreement recipient‟s role is to disburse funds to in-country educational service providers selected by U. S. Embassies.

These funds will support in-country educational service providers‟ activities such as English language programming for Access students and in-service teacher training for Access directors and teachers.

In addition, the recipient will provide at least two U. S. workshops, one for selected Access directors and teachers and the other for selected Access students.

These projects include building the Access students‟ leadership and community service skills and increasing their understanding of U. S. culture and society.

The Access directors‟ and teachers‟ workshop will focus on providing linguistic enhancement through immersion studies with firsthand exposure to the U. S. and the ability to share these experiences with Access students through their English language lessons and enhancement activities as well as share their experience with other Access teachers through teacher training seminars.
