Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

Welcome to the Cultural Companion Program!

Thanks for your willingness to walk alongside newly-arrived refugees as they build new lives in our community! We look forward to connecting you with a friend (or a whole family). As you get ready to start that friendship, we want to equip you with resources. Please join the Cultural Companion Coordinator for coffee and a conversation about topics such as:

· Communicating cross-culturally

· Practicing English with people with limited proficiency

· Setting proper expectations and boundaries

· Dealing with common issues related to childcare, mental health, and jobs

· Reporting hours via Track It Forward

· Accessing resources i.e. the Volunteer Toolkit

You're making a significant commitment to invest time and energy in a long-term friendship, so we want to empower and encourage you!

Please note:

This event is for people who have already completed an application, passed a background check, and decided to volunteer as cultural companions through World Relief Seattle.
