Crack the Code.

Cultural Cohesion Code helps college student-athletes develop cultural competency skills to achieve excellence on and off the field as global citizens who can survive and thrive anywhere in the world.

Founded by Project Global Citizen (Australia) and BrainStorm Training Group LLC (USA), the Cultural Cohesion Code program is a cultural competency accelerator program for college student-athletes.

The code:

Respect + Social Cohesion = Employability.

Our motto:

Fostering mutual respect.

Misunderstood.

Cultural Misunderstandings and Teamwork

Have you ever expressed a good intention, only to be misunderstood by someone from a different background? Could cultural misperceptions be holding you or your team mates back?

You’re not alone!

The purpose of our programs is to achieve cultural cohesion in our locker rooms, on our campuses and within our broader community.

We invite you to take the CC Code Survey to share your insights, no matter whether you’re a college student-athlete or someone who simply cares about cultural cohesion on and off campus.

Who’s behind the CC Code?

The Cultural Cohesion Code is a truly global partnership between thought leaders from Australia and the USA. 

Adapted for delivery into the locker rooms in the US, the CC Code program is an evolution of the Project Global Citizen movement that originated in Australia in 2017.  Project Global Citizen is a cultural competency accelerator program for students that focusses on cross-cultural skills to improve employability, no matter where in the world you want to work.
