The International Student Association presents
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Dinner and Discussion on
Volunteerism and Service Abroad: What are we Giving, What are we Taking Away?
Learn. Discuss. Engage. Eat.
Where: Transportation Center, 600 Foster Street
Across from Blomquist on the corner of Foster and Sheridan)
When: Tuesday, January 25th, 7-9 pm
This month’s Food for Thought dinner and discussion will focus on the benefits and potential consequences of volunteering abroad. Is it a good idea for foreigners to travel to a community in which they may not know the culture, politics, and local customs? Can they do tangible good? Would it be better to just send money? What are the benefits for the volunteers? Does attitude matter in how volunteers enter a foreign country?
Whether you’ve never volunteered before, are seasoned at building housing and playing with kids in foreign countries, or have participated in ASB, ALL are welcome! Students from Turkey, China, Kenya and Uganda will provide their perspectives on foreign volunteerism to kick off the night’s discussion.
Join us for free food from 7-9 pm in the Transportation Center. Learn. Discuss. Engage. Eat.
