During the course of our walking we will sample about 10 different items, representing the Dominican, Jewish, Italian and Chinese communities of the Lower East Side. Offerings will include vegetarian options. 

What are some of the themes of our monthly meeting? What will we do in those meetings?

General themes may include intercultural communication styless, intercultrual conflict styles, religious identity, race, gender, language, ethnic heritage, sexual orientation among others. In the meetings we will discuss common themes and issues and conduct activities around self-awareness and intercultural understanding. Themes will try to coincide with heritage and history months.


What if me and my ambassador pair do not work out? Can I make a request to change an ambassador?

The GAP coordinators will be available throughout the year to help mediate any potential conflicts or disagreements. We hope that you and your ambassador pair will have a wonderful year, but it will be possible to change your ambassador.
