GLM Travel Trainers’ Prospective Blog

I believe travel training empowers independence in individuals. It gives people confidence, pride, and the power to be self-sufficient. I valued every second of my time at New Horizons, and I know that when I earn my MSW degree in Spring 2015, I will carry the mission, vision, and values of New Horizons and Greenlight to Mobility program with me wherever I go.

Green Light to Mobility and Cultural Humility

New Horizons’ Green Light to Mobility (GLM) Program takes a new focus on diversity training, called Cultural Humility. Cultural Humility, as described by Dr. Jann Murray-Garcia and Dr. Melanie Tervalon, is the lifelong process of self-reflection, awareness and critique; simply put, it is the “careful consideration of a person’s assumptions and beliefs, which are embedded in their understanding and interactions with [another person]” (California Health Advocates, 2007).
