  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our volunteers come from all over the world and have varying levels of education and experience. Cultural norms will challenge communication - how you expect to speak and share feedback may be different. Language barriers may limit depths of connection. We hope to offer a middle-ground and do our best to "meet you where you are". We respect everyone's identity, culture, time, and energy.
