APPLICATION DEADLINE for winter quarter 2015: January 16, but partnerships may be filled on a first come, first serve basis.

How does this program work?

  1. You submit an online application
  2. Coordinator places applicants in partnerships and groups
  3. Partners come in at an assigned time to ISS Pilchuck to meet and go over program expectations
  4. Partners arrange weekly meetings
  5. Partners turn in a tracking log AND reflection form by March 16, 2015
  6. Eligible participants will be able to pick up a certificate of achievement by March 20, 2015

CPP is not a tutoring program, but a way for people to learn about culture and practice communication skills. Partnership with a specific nationality or language speaker cannot be guaranteed, but we will do our best to make compatible partnerships.
