Upward Scholars Conversation Club: Friday, September 28th


The Upward Scholars Conversation Club is an informal gathering where Upward Scholars students and members of the Upward Scholars community meet to chat. We started the club to give our students the opportunity to practice English in an informal setting and to give community members the opportunity to get to know our students. We use a "speed-dating" model, where Upward Scholars students and community members pair off and chat for about 10 minutes before moving on to the next person. That way everyone has the opportunity to chat with multiple conversation partners.
