Global Link Friday - "NYC"

The Japan ICU Foundation's staff has organized a series of activities for Global Link participants on Fridays. Every Friday, Global Link participants will meet at the Japan ICU Foundation's offices at 9:00am. We will begin with one hour of discussion, during which participants will reflect on their week of volunteering with their host organization. Each Friday will then feature a different set of cultural, team-building and leadership development activities.

On Friday, July 11 we will meet at the JICUF office at 9:00am. We will start by taking a tour of the Morningside Heights neighborhood. This will include stops at Columbia University, St. John the Divine, Grants Tomb and Riverside Church. We will then proceed to a Circle Line cruise around Manhattan. After lunch, we will visit Times Square and the Empire State Building.
