Online Language & Cultural Exchange Program

Develop a sense of global connectedness through meaningful interactions
between international students and US students.

Program Overview

In light of Covid-19’s disruptive impact on our typical programs, we are providing cross-cultural experiences for our students around the world in a new way. Through two online initiatives: a live Spanish-English language exchange between U.S. students and students from either Costa Rica or Guatemala; and a live cultural exchange in English between our U.S. students and students from one of our five international locations . Our team will facilitate each live exchange session, manage the topics, and help foster a bond with students from communities all over the world. With these interactive programs, we will continue to facilitate global connections among youth and provide them with the opportunity to learn about other cultures from homeIf you (or your daughter/son if you’re a parent) would like to learn about participating, please email fatai@dreamvolunteers.org

Online Exchange

Engage in global connectedness, cross-cultural immersion, and service from home!

Join our global community by participating in live video interactions. You’ll be paired with Young Dreamers from one of our five locations, you’ll get to know each other in real-time, make connections, ask questions, and learn about your communities and cultures.

There will be one consistent 60-minute live video session per week over the course of five weeks. Each session will be in English and prompts will circulate before each session to help guide conversations.

 

Language Exchange

Practice Spanish and/or help others from another country practice English!

You’ll be paired with Young Dreamers from either Costa Rica or Guatemala. Together you’ll engage in a bilingual discussion each session, learning about each other’s communities, cultures, and languages in the process.

There will be one consistent 60-minute live video session per week over the course of five weeks. Each session will be spoken half in Spanish and half in English. Bilingual prompts will circulate before each session to help all participants prepare and feel confident in their conversational abilities.
