Happy New Year, educators!
2017 is a monumental year for our organization, one in which we will celebrate 30 years of bringing global education to classrooms across the U.S. and around the world.
The name VIF has served us well for 30 years, and while it will always hold a special place in the hearts of our staff, our teachers and partners, our name should more accurately reflect our current programs and services, today and in the years to come. We are pleased to share that we have adopted Participate as our new company name.
We hope you will take a look at our new continuous learning platform, which offers collaborative learning opportunities through education-oriented Twitter chats, classroom resource curation and professional development courses. In addition to our new platform, we will continue to provide our cultural exchange teacher program, dual language immersion and global education programs.
Please reach out if you have any questions about this transition or our learning platform.
We look forward to continuing on this journey of collaborative educator development with you!
David Young, CEO
