International Cultural Exchange Program Orientation

International Cultural Exchange Program Orientation

Being involved in an international cultural exchange program is exciting, and you'll want to make the experience as rewarding and interesting as possible. That's why we encourage host families and exchange participants to attend an orientation arranged by the sponsoring Lions club.

The orientation session is meant to help prepare you for one of the most exciting experiences of your life, and to answer any questions you may have about the exchange program.

Topics can include:

  • Cultural tolerance
  • Cultural adaptation (including host family relations)
  • Host family role
  • Rules and logistics, along with other pertinent information about Lions clubs
  • Role of sponsor Lions club and host Lions club and districts
  • Travel
  • Passports
  • Visas
  • Immunizations
