Spirit always loves the chance to meet with program participants at their Host Companies, and hear about their training and cultural exchange experiences. Last week, Spirit was able to meet with some of our Interns and Work and Travel Participants in Estes Park and in Granby, Colorado.
In Estes Park, participants were able to attend the International Fair hosted by the YMCA of The Rockies. J-1 participants and International staff at the YMCA present information about their countries, and give attendees a chance to learn fun facts about a variety of places! Together, we had the chance to experience new food, cultures, and languages. The International Fair was a memorable experience with performances from participants highlighting songs, clothes, or traditional dances from their home country.
In Granby, participants receiving training in Human Resource and Front Desk positions were able to give Spirit staff a tour of their Host Company and talk about their program. We loved hearing about their professional development experience, cultural exchange opportunities, and life-long memories they are making!
