Volunteer Opportunity – Global Engagement Mondays

If you are a life-long American resident, and if you enjoy meeting new people from other cultures and learning about different perspectives, apply to be a GEM facilitator! It’s a great way to get to know members of the UC Davis international community and develop new skills in intercultural communication and group facilitation at the same time!

GEM provides an opportunity for both domestic and international students, scholars, and spouses to discuss a variety of topics in a creative and safe environment. Topics during previous quarters varied from discussing experiences with cross-cultural greetings to discussing personality types and how they impact everyday life. You can read more about the program on the SISS website. Last spring, we averaged an attendance of 30-40 people each Monday!

When: GEM will occur every Monday night beginning October 23rd from 5:30-6:30pm

Where: UC Davis International Center, 2nd Floor Conference Room
