      AFS Pre-Departure Orientation December 8th, 2019 (Year and Semester students)

      The Pre-Departure Orientation (PDO) is required by the State Department for all students and their parent(s). The goal of the PDO is to help you start preparing for your cultural experience and set goals for what you want. You will be joined by other local AFS students who are also preparing to go abroad. This orientation is preparatory and not country specific. We will be covering topics such as: AFS and You; Personal Safety and Well-Being; Cultural Adjustment and Coping; Culture Learning; and Personal Goals and Expectations. You will also get to meet local AFS returnees who have a lot of insight about things like countries money, cellphone, schools, etc. Students and parents will participate together. Please arrive promply at 9:15am so we can get started at 9:30. Lunch will be provided during an AFS returnee panel session. Please let us know if you have any particular food restrictions and we will try to accomodate. We will provide vegetarian options, but if you have any particular food allergies we suggest bringing something to supplement.  Please RSVP for parents and students separately using the designated Parent and Applicant Tickets. This helps us keep track of how many students/family members will be attending.
