Here is almost the whole group! We had our final meeting and talked about the itinerary, flights, some cultural differences, the importance of open communication, host families and pairings for homestays, and we posted our first Yak board reflections! Mr. Caraballo and I also reminded students of the importance of reading the Course Prep Manual ahead of time (some of it they have seen before – ex. Packing list, some cultural differences we went over today), as there is a lot of important information in it. This was the spiral bound manual we gave out during the parent meeting. Parents, feel free to also peruse it.
Feel free to read the students’ reflections on their strengths, what led them to this program, and what they hope to get out of the program.
