Below are action items for you and your participant to complete for this month, however you can always catch up or get ahead with our predeparture checklist that can be found on our Predeparture Resource Page here!
Canvas Online Pre-Departure Course: The April section of this course, which was released today, includes some very exciting new material! Participants introduce themselves to their program leaders; the adult chaperones who will be with them throughout their time abroad. They also learn more specific information about their host culture and complete some program-specific academic pre-work. This module includes important logistical information, including how to access money abroad, the dress code for their location, and a packing list.
A final, shorter (about 1 hour long) module will be released on May 15th. Please check in with your participant to make sure that they are on track to complete the course by June 1st. It is a program requirement.
