Let’s Get Ready to Welcome New Students This summer we have a series of volunteer trainings planned to help us be prepared to welcome new students. Things have changed in many ways during the past 2 years and now seems like the appropriate time for a refresher and to gain some new insights. We are excited by the addition of 2 evenings of roundtable discussions. We will focus on India and China and our panel will be made up of volunteers and friends who are from those countries. In addition, we will spend an hour focusing on airport pickups and hosting. Sign up for the sessions that are relevant to your area of volunteer focus.
THURSDAY JULY 15, 7PM: INDIAN CULTURE Join us for a round table discussion with volunteers from India. They will share with us cultural insights that will help us build relationships with students from India.

TUESDAY JULY 27th, 7PM: ARRIVAL SEASON PREPARATION We will have an orientation meeting for all arrival season volunteers. Things have changed for all of us considerably in the past 2 years but connecting with international students is still a strategic investment. It’s time for a refresher and to also consider the implications of our expanded reach to all nations.
