Intercultural work is intended for overcoming language and socio-cultural barriers during communication between foreigners and officials at different authorities and other institutions. On the one hand, it facilitates the officials’ work, on the other hand, it helps foreigners handle various life situations. The Integration Centre’s team of intercultural workers also offers these services for Vietnamese, Ukrainian, and Arabic-speaking clients. You can find contact information for all the intercultural workers here. There are other organisations offering services of intercultural workers in Prague as well – you can find the complete list here. Prague’s long-term goal is to make people from foreign countries feel welcome in the Capital City, so that the motto of the abovementioned website could hold true, i.e. that Prague really is a metropolis for all.
In which situations can you use the services of an intercultural worker?
- Interpreting during communication between foreigners and workers in different institutions.
- Assisting foreigners with filling out forms.
- Providing short translations for workers of institutions.
- Accompanying foreigners to other public institutions.
- Assisting foreigners with orientation in the Czech society, providing basic counselling and explaining how the Czech institutional system works.
- Arranging contacts for other related services (legal and social counselling at Integration Centre Prague; other public institutions; non-profit organisations if needed).
