Connect Across Cultures with One-on-One Conversations

One-on-One Conversations is a new International Center program that matches volunteers from both the New Haven and Yale communities with international students, scholars and their spouses/partners at Yale to engage in language and culture exchange. Over 65 English-speaking volunteers are already participating and expanding their understanding of people, the world and cross-cultural communication. The time commitment is one hour a week and possible benefits further include being able to share your country and culture with others, learning or practicing teaching skills and offering friendship across cultures.

The international community has eagerly responded to this wonderful opportunity to connect across cultures and get to know the U.S. and its people better, and community volunteers are very much in demand. Please help to spread the word and consider volunteering today. To learn more about this program and/or to sign up online, go to http://www.oiss.yale.edu/conversations/ .
