Have you ever wondered how the life of a student from the United States differs from yours in Portugal? Would you like to experience it first-hand? Then the SiPN Buddy Network is ideal for you!
We are recruiting volunteers to buddy up with our incoming North American students for the Spring 2020 semester which is set to start on the 1st of February. If you would like to apply for the program, please complete the form: https://forms.gle/4tJzBxPWMC5UtnMHA
The SiPN Buddy Program is a framework that provides Portuguese students with the opportunity to interact with U.S. students who are in Lisbon for a study abroad semester program. The overall purpose of the program is to improve the mutual integration of SiPN students and local students (attending SiPN’s partner universities), while developing close relationships and interactions to enrich their lives through a truly intercultural experience.
By participating in SiPN’s social, cultural and educational events and connecting to these students, you can have a meaningful part in their study abroad experience, serving as both an ambassador of your school, of Lisbon and of Portugal while at the same time making friends that will last a lifetime.
For more information on the Buddy Program feel free to email us to firstname.lastname@example.org and keep an eye on our social media channels where we’ll be posting additional info.
