SEAT AT THE TABLE

  • A webcam and internet are required to participate in seat at the table.
  • Each virtual conversation is 1 hour.
  • An additional 30 minutes prior to conversations should be reserved to review resources.
  • Designed for youth interested in global awareness, practicing their English or leadership skills, making global friends, improving college and career readiness.

seat at the table is a virtual community where youth meaningfully interact, share stories, and form bonds across distance and difference. Small groups of peers (ages 16 to 19) from around the world come together for an hour-long, face-to-face virtual conversation to discuss their daily lives, hobbies, interests, identities, cultures, misconceptions, and what it means to be part of our ever-changing world. Whether youth join to build self-confidence and leadership skills, to practice new languages, to prepare for their futures, or to form friendships, seat at the table helps them learn about themselves and our world in a new way.

All conversations are youth-led and the seat the the table community is youth-governed based on our community norms. All conversations are recorded for safety and security purposes. Global Nomads Group reserves the right to permanently remove anyone who violates community norms.

HOW IT WORKS

STEP ONE

 

Youth join the community online and reserve their "seat" for upcoming conversations.

STEP TWO

 

Youth with reserved seats join a "table" for an hour long conversation with up to 5 additional youth from around the world.

STEP THREE

Youth share feedback to further improve the experience! Youth can sign up to join as many conversations as they like, pending seat availability!

 

"THIS WAS SO EYE-OPENING. I WANTED TO GET OUT OF THE BUBBLE OF MY LIFE. TO MEET PEOPLE FROM DIFFERENT BACKGROUNDS TO MY OWN. BECAUSE I THINK THAT'S HOW YOU GET A MORE DIVERSE UNDERSTANDING OF THE WORLD." - Anabelle, USA
