The Role of Team Leader
Programs are led by faculty in partnership with an Xperitas Team Leader, who manages logistics, community partner liaison (and a translator, if needed), and facilitates group reflection. Team Leaders are trained in facilitation, group dynamics, and cross-cultural communication. Each day, the Team Leader facilitates a team meeting to reflect on the day’s events, where students are asked to share their individual reflections in a team journal. The journalis distributed to the group after the program and serves as a reminder of their collective experience.
