Global Chats-connecting the world virtually on topics facing us now. An opportunity for us to bring communities together and stay connected.
Council of International Programs works toward building bridges of understanding through meaningful cross cultural exchanges.
We are excited about the development of Global Chats! It’s one way to meet our mission-but virtually!
