Event description

Description

This Pre-Departure Orientation (PDO) is required by the State Department for all students and their parent(s). The goal of the PDO is to help you start preparing for your cultural experience and set goals for what you want.
You will be joined by other local AFS students who are also preparing to go abroad.

This orientation is preparatory and not country specific. We will be covering topics such as: AFS and You; Personal Safety and Well-Being; Cultural Adjustment and Coping; Culture Learning; and Personal Goals and Expectations. You will also get to meet local AFS returnees who have a lot of insight about things like countries money, cellphone, schools, etc.

Please plan appropriately to arrive with enough time to find parking in the area. A decent parking option is this location: 3333 California Street – UCSF Laurel Heights - $8 for all day parking. We will be starting promptly at 9:45am so give yourself enough time to check in and get settled with some coffee and snacks. Lunch with vegetarian options will be provided during an AFS Returnee Panel Session - however, we suggest for anyone with food allergies to bring some supplementary lunch.

Please RSVP for parents and students separately using the designated Parent and Applicant Tickets. This helps us keep track of how many students/family members will be attending.
