Join the Conversation Partners “Gathering Party” on February 15 for our American volunteers to come and meet their new international students. This is a very important event to help them all connect, so we strongly urge all of them to attend. Both new and returning volunteers may fill out an online form at www.WaterforIshmael.org (click on Programs, then Conversation Partners).
Prior to the Gathering Party, first-time applicants are asked to attend one hour-long orientation session for American Conversation Partners. These will be on the following dates at Grace Church, 3700 Dorr Street, Toledo, Ohio. You only need to attend one of these 2019 orientation meetings:
- Saturday, February 2 at 10 AM
- Sunday, February 3 at 2:30 PM
- Tuesday, February 5 at 7 PM
- Sunday, February 10 at 2:30 PM
After you have attended one of the orientation sessions, it is time for the Gathering Party! We play games, share refreshments, and help “break the ice” in a fun group environment. The international students always look forward to this event.
Thanks so much for all the support you have shown Conversation Partners outreach in the past. We hope that a good number can join for the fall semester.
