Intercambios - Cross Cultural Conversations
La Paz's vision is to serve as a center of peace where the Latino community can find the support and resources they need to thrive. One of the best ways to create that atmosphere of peace is through an openness to engage them in conversation in an informal setting. La Paz's Intercambios are a way to do just that.
Intercambios involve bilingual La Paz volunteers who open up their homes (or a nearby community location) to a small group of ten to twelve individuals, half from the native English speaking community and half from the native Spanish speaking community, in order to share a potluck style meal together and an informal conversation (30 minutes in each language) for the purpose of language practice and cross cultural exchange.
You learn a lot about someone when you share a meal together.
- Anthony Bourdain, world famous chef
La Paz is looking for volunteer hosts and participants from both the English and Spanish speaking communities to participate.
