Conversation Partners Program

Applications are now closed.

Emory’s Conversation Partner Program is a volunteer program that pairs domestic and international Emory community members to create friendships and bridge the gap between domestic and international community members. The program primarily focuses on the exchange of culture and cultural experiences, since we hope to foster cross-cultural exchanges of interests and values. Participants will be matched based on preferences (including nationality, language, and interests) and are expected to meet twice a month.

  • Expected to meet minimum of one hour, once a week (~4 hours per month)
