Bordeaux-USA provides to residents of Gironde the opportunity to share Franco-American friendship, culture and ideas through English-speaking events and our Library in the heart of Bordeaux. We can try for FREE to take part in one talk (Thursday evening 7:00 pm) OR one conversation hour (see 'Practice your English' tab).
Thursday 14th: sharing my experiences as a Peace Corp Volunteer.
From The Peace Corps' Strategic Plan: "TPCs' mission is to promote world peace and friendship. While much has changed in the world since the Peace Corps’ founding in 1961, its mission has not. The Peace Corps’ three core goals are as relevant today as they were over four decades ago: 1. To help the people of interested countries in meeting their need for trained men and women 2. To help promote a better understanding of Americans on the part of the peoples served 3. To help promote a better understanding of other peoples on the part of Americans."
We are most fortunate to have 2 American Peace Corp volunteers, Dan Hall, our current U.S. Counsel and our member, Linda Martin, who participated in this program. Come hear about their experiences and learn more about an organization that promotes peace and helps people around the world to build better communities.
