Pre-Departure Meetings

Each ISE region hosts a Pre-Departure Meeting between mid January and early February for participating students and their parents to prepare them for their upcoming stay in their host destination. It is essential that the student who will be travelling along with at least one parent attend the meeting.

If you are not able to attend the meeting in your region or if there is no meeting set for your region, please contact the ISE office to discuss alternate options. Meetings will be posted as they are confirmed.
