You probably have heard of traditional pen pals, individuals who become companions with one another by regularly writing letters. I-Pals are pen pals with a common goal: to make friends with people who are different from themselves and build stronger inter-connected communities. You and your new I-pal will share letters, emails, and virtual meetings to build a friendship based on interracial understanding, intercultural communication, and global awareness.
There are many benefits for becoming an I-Pal.
The I-Pal journey is an exciting one. For the next several months, you will grow in your own understanding of intercultural communication and interconnected communities through intentional friendship building.
