Our plans to celebrate Intercordia’s tenth anniversary are well underway!

Our plans to celebrate Intercordia’s tenth anniversary are well underway. It will be in east end Toronto, on Oct. 10th 7 – 9 pm at CSI Regent Park, a social enterprise with a mission to catalyze social innovation in Toronto and around the world.  Our goal is to have 100 alumni attend. We want it to be a celebration, a time to reconnect, share memories and revitalize the experience you had when you participated. We want to express our gratitude for all that we received during our experience.

I feel two things strongly these days…… Intercordia is about hearts, ours and those we shared the experience with and secondly it is true that hard things can mature us and make us more compassionate. I have always been surprised and inspired listening to participants describe their experiences. There is often a mixture of, “It was so hard!” and “I learned so much!” that ends with, “I am so grateful for my experience.” We have been so fortunate to have had wonderful mentors along the way, our host families, neighbours and friends in the host community who have shown us through example that life can be hard and beautiful simultaneously. We know that because we experienced it firsthand!

I hope you will make the choice to come and celebrate and reclaim the Intercordia Experience.

Save the date! October 10th: https://intercordiacanada.org/alumni-event-save-the-date
