Join iPALs – International Partners and Leaders
This program is helpful for incoming international students because it provides friendly faces and a welcoming atmosphere when they arrive. The benefits for becoming an iPAL include having an intercultural experience, and being able to add this leadership opportunity to your resume. Any volunteer time with the iPAL program can also count towards service requirements.
Leaders will welcome new international students when they first arrive in Cincinnati, and volunteer at welcome events and other events throughout the year. Partners will be friendly faces to international students, and attend some events throughout the year. A 1-hour training session for those selected to be Leaders will be scheduled during the week of August 13-17.
There are no special requirements to participate—other than being interested in helping international students acclimate to their new surroundings! We would love for you to volunteer whether you’re from the US or an international student.
