This very special event allows teens to connect with teens from a different country, learn about their culture, laugh, and build connections together!

Using Skype, we will be contacting a group of students who will be using this as an opportunity to practice their English conversation skills, while the teens will be trying to discover where our guests are from. This of course includes general time for the teens to just talk with and get to know each other.
